    Why are comments on the post previous to this one closed? It’s brand new! Will the comments remain closed?

      The captain does that sometimes if the comments are likely to turn into a huge mean-spirited argument that would be horrible to moderate. There’s a thread on the forums about that letter if you want to comment there.

      Sometimes I can write OR wade through 300 of other people’s thoughts on a topic, but not both. And yes, they are closed on purpose and will remain so.

        No worries!

      • ism said:

        OK, thanks. I’m an infrequent reader and wasn’t able to tell if it’s a glitch or intentional. Thanks for clarifying. (I was happy to see that post even if comments are closed, and even happier to see your response, as I identify with that letter writer’s daughter very much!)

          There’s a pretty good thread going in the forums, if you’re interested.

          • Clarry said:

            Could you provide a link to the thread? I just tried to find it and got lost.

          • RB said:

            Yeah, I can never find the thread I’m looking for. It’s a little tricky.

    Great, I will try to make it. Weird that I couldn’t comment on the page with the post.

  6. I wish I could come! Sadly, I’m situated in Texas so I am too far away but I really wish I was there so I could meet you IRL but I hope the meetup is absolutely awesome!

    • Bah! Organize one sometime and I will come to yours! My brother lives in Texas, so I have a standing excuse to visit the state. ^_^
