I know that the Powers That Be here are currently working on the comment situation, to allow for a little more freedom in comment posting. In the meantime, I will be hosting comment threads for any and all over at my Scientopia blog every time I post here. If you aren't up to registering to comment here, we can chat about the posts over there! Hopefully commenting will become easier here sometime soon.
