I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate this. The day that BN moves to a Facebook-linked comments section is the day I will be forced to stop commenting (which may work to your benefit...).
It surprises many of us humble bloggers (unless you're willing to turn your comments over to a third-party platform, which I am not).
I'm sure it's frustrating for you. I hope you didn't read more into what I wrote that just the words I used.
In other words: it's not like I'm blowing it off. I promise you, I care about it, too. It's a subject that, given the amount of time I've spent on it, and what has now happened, makes me easily annoyed.
In the meantime, I'll just proofread my comments BEFORE I post them (how novel, eh?).
