Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you.

You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,
