Is there a way to revive a post that didn't get enough attention?

Joan McCarter had a post on Net Neutrality yesterday (11-21-17) that I think deserves a lot more attention than it got. Is there any way to revive this post and get it back on the front page? Thank you.

    The actual attention a Front Page article gets is rather hard to quantify, but you probably don't want to guess by the number of recommends it receives. We get something like a thousand times as many readers as actual, participating users. and the majority of them read the Front Page. They cannot, of course, tip or recommend.

    In this case, since Joan's diary has yet to be posted to the Front Page, the question is moot. It will certainly be re-posted sometime in the next few days, as the editors place their backlog of stories in whatever complex patterns they may use.

    Thanks, Gingerella, for raising the issue.

    The comment by siab is a good one. That post by Joan McCarter made it to the Front Page early this afternoon, and presumably it got more views there. No doubt it will remain a hot topic for the next several days. Joan does cover it well, and it is a vitally important issue, though unfortunately one that tends to slip under the radar for many. Please feel free to share it via Facebook, Twitter, or emailing the URL to your contacts to help it get more exposure as well.
