jendrian, I wouldn't care at all either, except you said "mods or ex-mods come up with the same thing with a slight difference. I`m not saying that`s what happened here, but it`s a little bit suspicious that I submitted "TheOatmeal creator made a new site called BearFood.com, which I believe everyone should check out", and now like a tenth of bearfood`s content keeps appearing on IAB." which means you think the mods are doing something `suspicious`...that`s why I looked.(Just like I do anytime someone accuses a mod, ex. 5cats vs madest) You can look at your history if you want but if you submitted it it didn`t make it. When you submit anything it shows us the link. No matter what your title was it would have bearfood.com in the link, if you were linking us to that site, and none of yours do.
If you don`t care that much, why did you bring it up, and WORST OF ALL accuse mods of wrong doing? Us mods get enough crap already.

@Jendrian - It might surprise you to learn that I, like you, keep tabs on The Oatmeal. And I discovered he'd set up Bearfood. As hell, I like it so I check it often. I saw a couple links I liked, so I subbed them here.
Everything on the internet comes form somewhere else. If you see a picture, there`s a good chance it`s already done the rounds.

Kitteh, I didn't submit it specifically like that, if you want I can probably try to find in my history exactly how it was that I submitted it, but I really don`t care that much

jendrian I went and checked it out and you have never submitted "TheOatmeal creator made a new site called BearFood.com, which I believe everyone should check out" or anything with "theoatmeal" in the title. So I don't believe there is a `bearfood` conspiracy. I have never even heard of the site myself, but I love theoatmeal so I plan to check it out, as do many on here, I am sure, now that you have brought it up.

MacGuffin, for someone who claims not to peruse the internet a lot, your daily routine seems exhausting to me; IAB and IHC are the only sites I check almost daily.
I don't visit most of them daily; those are just the only sites I visit at any time. And I missed the BBC News site out. :) Sometimes it feels like the internet`s become so much smaller compared to years gone by, and there are less and less places I go in it.
I hadn`t noticed the `suggest a site` section you pointed out below before. Looks like that`s just IAB trawling for leads to places they can look for content, rather than it actually being for the stated ostensible purpose of suggesting other sites though, eh?
