I'm too lazy to dig up the previous conversation about this in my
e-mail archives, but I think that's what we wanted to do at some
point. I think it's when Stacey started publishing OTD / DYK stuff and
we felt it could be scheduled far in advance to avoid being delayed by
belated validation of the proposed postings on the socialmedia@ alias.

It's also why the blog calendar has the qualifier "Blog" for each blog
post: because at some point we started to add social media stuff there
too, so "Blog" was used to distinguish the blog posts from social
media postings.

(Oh, and that means I'm totally fine with it, btw :)
