Hey Miss C - They don't make it easy to find you over
on Considerable or Geeks are Sexy. But with a little
perseverance. . .

For your followers here:

Miss C on Considerable

Miss C on Geeks are Sexy

Haven't figured out the comments piece yet. Perhaps one
has to register first?

They don't have comments on the blog posts at Considerable. They think Facebook is the place for that, but no one is going to Facebook AFTER they read an article, so I don't understand that logic at all.

I don't know what the deal is at Geeks Are Sexy. They've got that never-ending ad roll before comments, so you can't catch the window.

Not being on The Facebook I can't speak to their comments.
But whenever I'm bored, killing some time, need a laugh,
or see an especially inflammatory article headline on Fox,
I'll check the comments. If comments on The Facebook are
only 50% of the vitriol that's on Fox, I get the policy.
