I agree that filling in the date column is a job for a robot, and that it's pointless to have an empty date column until the robot is set up.  But why do you believe that the Karma and Summary columns should be removed? I think the karma column is useful, because it lets users sort the posts by karma.  Though we would want this data to also be updated by a bot, in case a post's karma changes after the post was initially added to the table.  I also think the summary column could be useful, though filling it in might be more work than it's worth. --[[User:PeerInfinity|PeerInfinity]] 19:47, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
