Okay, two things, and remember, we do it out of love.
First: We enabled this new threaded comments option on GardenRant. That means that you can reply to someone's comment and carry on your own little conversational thread right here on GR. It's all part of a new thing called TypePad Connect that is actually not just for TypePad, but any number of blog platforms etc where you may leave comments. We can also see your adorable little pictures if you have them. So let us know what you think–and if this is not working for you or driving you crazy, let us know that too. I don't think you have to have a TypePad Connect account, but this is where you'd set one up. And if you can't comment at all, send your curses and admonitions directly to amy at amy stewart dot com and I will try to sort it out.
Second: notice little Recent Comments box in left sidebar below Twitter feed. It's just a way to feature you, our readers.
Oh: and URLs in comments should be converted to links automatically now.
