As you've probably noticed we are having problems with moderation and DISQUS. I wish I could tell you why. know everyone here at The Atlantic is working to get this figured out. But until it is figured out, I'm shutting down comments. 


If it were as simple as dealing with trolls we probably could keep it going. But there is a small portion of The Horde, that evidently enjoys being trolled. Short of banning longtime readers,  there's not much I can do. And without moderation, there's nothing Sandy and Kathleen can do. 

Hopefully this will be resolved soon. My apologies.
