Note from the Author or Editor:
formatting mistake, the hyperlink got formatted wrong The URL https://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/30/technology/facebook-tinkers-with-users-emotions-in-news-feed-experiment-stirring-outcry.html should be hyperlinked to "experimenting on your users" and italics unnecessary, except for the word "causes"

Note from the Author or Editor:
the proposed fix (replacing "total" with "xs" in two places) is correct
