As many readers have noticed the comment section is still not working properly. The short version is that we have been having a problem with one of the databases that the site runs off of since moving the site to a new server. Our tech support staff is working to fix the issue as quickly as they can.

Hi. Several commenters have contacted us saying they are having trouble leaving comments. We don’t know why this is happening but we’re aware of the issue and are working on it with our tech support. Hopefully it will be resolved in the next couple of days. Sorry for the inconvenience!
A new batch of old comments has been re-imported back into the site going back to December 31, 2010. This included approximately 250,000 comments.

We are in the process of reloading older comments back into the site that had to be taken down when we were experiences server difficulties earlier this year. We were successfully able to import comments ranging between dates 04-01-2014 to 05-01-2014, which ended up being around 13,000 comments, and we plan on importing another 2 month batch of comments sometime next week.
Alert! It’s time for some housekeeping around here and we are switching servers. This means that as of 2 pm EDT on Friday, August 21 all posting and comments will be put on hold until all files are moved over to the new server. See you soon!
