You have probably noticed that over the past several weeks the lengthy, thoughtful, often maddening, but always valuable, comment chains under our most controversial postings have disappeared.
This is because we recently switched over to a new comment moderating software.
The good news is that going forward, your comments will be posted more quickly. But this means that more than 1,000 archived comments cannot be displayed under the new system. (They aren't gone forever, but the tech people tell me they can't be imported right now.)
This about broke my heart because your comments are the best part of this blog, and I feel terrible for leaving the faithful fans who continued to post for months afterwards on issues like letting a male nurse deliver your baby, should kids ride on ATVs?, and why don't the breastfeeding activists just give it a rest?, not to mention our other mom-provoking greatest hits, with a creepily clean slate.
All I can say is that I'll keep writing, and I hope you do too.
Soon, I hope, we'll have as many vibrant comments chains under the new entries as we did under the old ones
Thanks, as always, for reading and contibuting to Moms Are Talking About.
