What's the big deal? Slashdot has a Hall Of Fame that lists different things, including the top 10 "Most Active Stories". The bottom-most of that list had 2332 comments, and that was just beaten. FortKnox means what FortKnox says.
The JE is active, and hopefully will move up even further. The comments totals to beat now (at the posting of this JE) are 2388, 2398, 2465, 2549, 2574, 2722, 3042, 3212, 4183. At this rate, FortKnox might get the top. Three cheers. Quite an accomplishment for FortKnox and his ring.
Wonder if this will make trollback.
