No. No. No. No. No. No. No.

What the hell is this front page? What is that? That is not usable. At least on the main sites we can hit Latest to put things in the right order, but since io9 is a subsite, we don’t even get that option here.

I know this isn’t your fault James or the other writers, but I’m sorry, this is not acceptable and the rabble must be roused!
