I was going to save this for Friday night, but I don't feel like working this weekend. I'm sorry for disrupting the comments in real time but hopefully every thing should be back to normal soon as I sync up our comments database w/Disqus.
Assuming there are no issues that force me to pull it back off, the benefits will be:
1.) better editing of comments (indeed, ANY editing of comments)
2.) threaded comments (we might not leave that on, we'll see)
3.) easier spam management for us
4.) other cool stuff we'll write about in the future
I apologize for any inconvenience but you're freeing me up to watch college basketball all weekend. Thanks for your patience.
