Don't worry, it's only temporary. It's just that we've all gotten a little tired of spending so much time deleting comment spam and dealing with trolls and all that "first post!" crap, so we're switching off comments on new posts for the next day or two while we think about what we're going to do to try and make the comment boards not completely sucky. This was the first morning in months where I didn't have to spend the first 45 minutes of my day deleting spam and banning trolls, and I can't say that I hated it. In the meantime, if you want to comment on something we've written, post something up on your own blog, that's why we have that "Linking Blogs" link attached to every post now. Comments will be switched back on by Monday at the latest.
