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

Libel reform, the ongoing saga
One from the department of "their hearts are in the right place, but god they over-reach", I think. Basically, what possible libel reform could there ever be which would have prevented this? The surgeon in question is not being sued for libel and (as far as I can tell) hasn't even been specifically threatened with a libel suit. Someone has instructed their solicitor to send her a nasty letter. Which is unpleasant behaviour and I'm sure it ruined her morning, and people shouldn't do it. But equally clearly, there's no way at all that you can have a blanket ban on people asking their lawyers to send letters. Is there?
