Maybe that should be “99% Full Comment”, or “Full Until the Comments get Embarassing Comment”.
Last night I noticed that the comments (34 of them at last count) with Jonathan Kay’s snarly little bitchfest about the shrieking voices of “The Left” seemed to have gotten lost in a series of tubes or something. I considered that the problem might not be douchebaggery, but rather comment software run amok — until I looked at a few of Kay’s older entries, and then some from other contributors, which were all fine.

Maybe it’s just me, but “No comments have been posted” seems a little dishonest considering there’s no way anyone can post a comment. Shouldn’t that be “Comments are Closed”? (And does anyone want to put money on how long before the entire post goes away? Wingnuts: why screen shots were invented.)
