Uncategorized "pinned" post not shown for anon user?

however when I’m not logged it the post doesn’t show at all (http://talk.remobjects.com/). Am I missing something here?


I deleted "uncategorized". Is this bad?

Nevermind this. This was caused due to me removing the uncategorized “category” accidentally.

going to leave this as a bug then, we should not allow users to delete this category cause all sorts of stuff can go bad and fixing involves mucking with the db.

Oh geez yeah you should not be able to delete uncategorized. That would be very very bad.
