I’m sorry to those who liked it, but I decided to turn off threaded comments. There were just too many examples of people “responding” to the first comment with something that, while perhaps related to the original post, was not related to that comment, apparently to get their input up to the top of the comment list. I decided this was a simpler solution than trying to block those people.
Update: Many people use the “@” symbol to show that they are replying to a previous comment. So if you want to reply specifically to a comment by “agreenspan,” for example, put “@agreenspan:” at the beginning of your comment.
