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 have tried to see the "#twittertrial" from the point of view of the other side, but I must say I've basically failed to do so. It seems completely idiotic to me. Nonetheless, it does have to be dealt with as a fact that this case has now been looked at in a fair degree of depth by two or three airport security personnel, several police officers, a magistrate and a judge, all of whom have come to the same opinion. And this opinion is one that more or less everyone with a Twitter account considers to be actively bizarre.
It strikes me that this is a cultural divide potentially rather more practically significant than CP Snow's. I wonder if it is a new thing (different reactions to new technology), or whether it's always been there (ie, different views on whether there is such a thing as casual, informal speech) and it's just now that we've come to notice it.
