Scrolling Issue Fixed on Site

Many of our readers probably noticed that we had a glitch on our site for a time. When a reader scrolled near the bottom of a page, he could not scroll back up; he was trapped in the comments section. This nuisance was fixed last evening, thanks to the competence of our fantastic web designer, who can parse php in his sleep. Share, Bookmark, Like: Facebook, Twitter, etc.

I have just removed “hell” from the list of “bad words” that Disqus flags for moderation. (That list is long and grotesque, by the way!) I’m … More →
