Tomble's Journal: Comments posting: WTF? 4

Journal by Tomble
Temporarily breaking my JE silence due to this weirdness.

Was reading this story today, saw somebody's ill-thought-out comment, and clicked on "Reply to this".

      Actually, on the one hand, I never quite went away, I ended up making the odd posting here and there, but (apart from Turg's recent binary JE) it's generally been at a rate of maybe 3 postings per week rather than 3 per night!

      So all in all, you probably ought to take that point back! ;-) Sorry if it's been being a nuisance...
