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!

Times comment writer Stephen Pollard, what is it about the views of Times comment editor Danny Finkelstein that you find so compelling?
Since it is the latest cool trend in the blogosphere to do jokes that appeared on Matthew's blog a year ago (Update: eight months ago, I am my own Readers' Editor), I thought I'd bagsy this one. The Pollard blog really is a wonder of creation though; on there at the moment is a reader competition for "People who should be shot on sight" (I suggested Brazilian electricians, somewhat tastelessly) where he announces that he will "kick off with two slam dunks".
By the way, the "European Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism" has launched! Or at least I think it has. Pollard is referring to it in the present tense in his biography, but the only other presence it has on the internet is that Douglas Murray mentions it on his CV. Frankly, I would still say that if you spot some contemporary anti-Semitism in Europe you would be better off dealing with Sarah Rembiszewski (Western Europe) or Rafael Vago (Eastern Europe) of the Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University, as it frankly looks like a much more impressive institute.
