This Is Excellent News! For Andrew!!

We've seen your complaints about the comment system today, and some of the problems you've had while we have graciously allowed you to visit our site. We believe that all our visitors should feel privileged to have been granted the right to share their thoughts with us online. There are, after all, so few venues for commenting online.


But because we "understand" that most "people" will not "share" our broad, incomparable vision, and because we are are aware of all taking responsibility traditions, we thought we should offer the following: We greatly regret that your inability to post correctly has troubled you. We apologize for the fact that you have come to expect the comment system to "work" as you believe it should. We will try harder to ensure that, in the future, we are better equipped to ignore your whining and lamentations. 

Put simply, we thought you should know DISQUS is working as intended.
