Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Pompous Post Poker
One of the Euston Manifesto drafting committee (Damian Counsell of "Pootergeek") has challenged me to a game of Pompous Post Poker. I am at a bit of a disadvantage in terms of familiarity with his material (AFAICS he is kind of the British Steven den Beste) but I think I have decent game anyway and good google skills so it would be a bit poor of me to bottle it. So here we go. He thinks my Darfur post from the Guardian blog a few weeks back was pompous, so the ball is in my court. Fair enough, I think this post of his was more pompous. Your move, Damian. (I am on a freebie to the football the next couple of days but when I come back I will be able to give the nation's second favourite sport, PPP, my full attention.)
btw, he is having "problems with his spam filter" (charitable interpretation) or "a slightly self-serving finger on the delete button" (other possible interpretation), so I would point out that as of 2000 BST today, the posts he is replying to on that comments thread are not (are much easier to argue against) the ones I wrote.
