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!

I don't think misogyny is a type of trolling
... I think they're largely separate hobbies. Data point with respect to this post - how many abusive emails do you think I got for the famous rageboy banker post? None. One of my mates emailed me to say he thought I was probably in the wrong, but that's it. How many in the total history of D^2 Digest? Also none. How many through the entire operating period of adequacy.org, a site specifically dedicated to provoking them? One (and this was actually from someone who I had been arguing with in the comments section, not related to a front page post). Email threats (as opposed to comments section bullshit) are a specifically female function.
Currently, in the history of D^2D I have only ever felt motivated to ban commenters on three occasions; Dan Hardie twice (since rescinded), and the entire world once (still current).
