You may have noticed that we’re having a problem with comments: clicking on “comment” doesn’t do anything. I’m not sure what the cause is, but I’m rebuilding the site, which will hopefully fix the problem. In the meantime, you can still read and post comments by clicking on “permalink” and viewing the individual post page.
Sorry for the complication. — Dave Meyer
Update: The problem is evidently comment spam. Apparently someone is under the misimpression that I’m a big poker player. The spam has overwhelmed the comment module, so that you can’t event post through the permalink. I’m in touch with Steve’s tech guy, trying to resolve the problem.
This is really a shame, as we’ve gotten some great posts in today.
In the meantime, you can email me comments at DaveMeyer [at] gmail, and I’ll try to compile a digest to send to the individual posters this evening.
