Spinster aunt disables feature

It is with a tear in my duct that I announce the demise of nested comments on I Blame the Patriarchy. We had some good times, though, didn’t we, before it became an untenable mess?

I need to be alone now.

    w00t!

  2. thebewilderness

    Did you break it?

  3. D.

    You had nested comments?

    Sorry they’re gone; wish I’d noticed.

  4. Larkspur

    Oh no. I abused the nested commentationing, didn’t I? It’s my fault. Damn. I hate it when I can’t blame the patriarchy.

  5. Jodie

    It’s just as well; I’m apparently not technologically advanced enough to have used it properly.

    And I caught myself just in time to avoid an elipsis!

    Physioprof Triumphalism. Harrumph.

    Should we celebrate the too-brief flame, or mourn its extinction? Television has taught me that all endings — be they of films, lives, or even World Series — deserve the same accompaniment, which I offer here to grieve for nested comments:

    I will remember you
    (Doobie dom dom dom)
    WIll you remember me?
    (Doobie dom dom dom)
    Don’t let your life pass you by
    (Doobie dom dom dom)
    Weep not for the memories

    I think this is supposed to provide closure.

    I didn’t see it as messy but you’re the owner and you decide.

    Enjoy the tranquility. I love this blog and am so glad I found it. You have helped me through a difficult time in my life (I won’t elaborate), and I thank you.

    What are nested comments? As long as the blog remains, I’m happy. I love this blog.

  10. schatze

    You could have broken it to me easier than that.

  11. yttik

    I thought nesting was mandatory for women? Should we be threatening the very foundation of civilization itself by this reckless act of rebellion?

  12. Sarah

    Indentation is overrated anyway.

  13. Barbara P

    Sometimes it’s better not to give in to those nesting instincts.

    That’s a shame. Nested comments allow readers to feel engaged in the discussion like nothing else. Even if incidences of abuse seem to happen, it makes your blog look uber-popular!

  15. nails

    DAMN. I liked the indent. D:

  16. Aster Medallion

    It scares me when you go away for so long.

  17. TArr

    I only read this for the updates on Stanley anyway.
    More horse, less wit.

  18. Antoinette Niebieszczanski

    As someone upthread stated, nesting is overrated.

    Return to us when the time of your solitude has passed.

    Nested comments mean someone can comment and LOOK like they’ve mentioned a topic/aspect of the topic first, when really someone mentioned it earlier but farther down the page because they didn’t use reply. Also one knows exactly which comments they’ve read if one is careful (everything above one’s comment has been read).

  20. Katherine

    ^ replace “Also” with “Without nested comments”

    It really was not all that bad. We are just glad you are healthy.
