Man, the people at FrontBurner are mounting a relentless push to fill the entire front page of FrontBurner with stories about the new comments policy. Just a few more and they’ll have it!
Here’s a timeline of Tuesday, April 21:
11:51 a.m.: Wick ends comments forever. End of discussion.
12:41 p.m.: Tim can see both sides and posts responses from both sides.
2:02 p.m.: Wick, apparently, only gets positive e-mails from readers and posts four of them.
2:26 p.m.: Tim posts a link to Bethany’s excellent critique of the change. (But no shoutout for LodoWick?!?)
2:41 p.m.: Zac remembers that comments weren’t always bad/from RayRay.
4:20 p.m.: Tim gives props to the DMN (wait, what?) for giving FBvians a new home. (But wait, this is their new home!) Also worth noting on this one: Tim mentions the DMN City Hall blog, but he doesn’t link to it. Sneaky Tim thinks we don’t have Google. But we do!
5:01 p.m.: Some computery guy backtracks and tells us that we’ll see comments again real soon. So don’t go anywhere! Please!
Wednesday, April 22:
I’ll keep this updated as the saga continues.
