Relaunching Comments

Not sure if anyone is still looking over here, but just in case: I'm doing what I think of as a relaunch of comments over at Bloomberg today. I'm going to begin zapping, pretty aggressively at first.

If any of the old readers (and commenters) from Plain Blog have given up commenting or reading the comments over there, this is a good week to give it another try. I can't promise that it'll be just like it was here...but I'm going to see what I can do. At least I'll give it a try for a while, and see what happens.

On another, the rss feed for the new place isn't ready yet. Yes, it's still planned. They're doing a site redesign, and they've assured me that when the redesign is ready, the rss feed will be. And that's supposed to be? Soon.


  1. Is there any way you could set up a system whereby new Bloomberg articles are automatically 'mirrored' by a new post here, consisting only of a link to the Bloomberg post?

    That way, you wouldn't be infringing any Bloomberg copyright rules, but we could comment on the posts here, like we used to. The comments culture at Bloomberg really is just pathetic.


  2. I take it back, it's got vastly better.

    I've no idea how you did that - I assumed culling the morons would be about as effective as pulling out weeds - but well done!


    1. Thanks.

      When the tide comes in (100+ comment threads) it's still hard for me to do much. Those who are junk-averse are probably better off just skipping those, even if there are oases of sanity within the mess. But for the smaller threads, I can prune them reasonably well.
