I wanted to see what others had to say about an item featured on the front page. It looks pretty nifty, but when I click on the ‘Discuss this item on BoingBoing’ it says that the discussion is closed, with no link to said archived comments. I then went to the store page, but there’s no opportunity for discussion or reviews there.
For something to be on the front page, I really feel it is important that there is an opportunity to engage in the dialog/interaction. Engaging dialog is, to me, a uniquely-BoingBoing experience.
Also, doesn’t it feel a bit weird that the BoingBoing Store has special rights to close discussion on the products sold?
