So there’s this thing that happens on BoingBoing articles where the “comments” link doesn’t point to a BBS thread, but rather back to the BB article itself. It seems like it happens probably 20% of the time. Usually it seems to get fixed, but I’m not sure if it’s some sort of automated housekeeping or if one of the site admins has to go in and manually fix it. Maybe there’s a delay in automation when articles get posted before the corresponding BBS thread gets created, and this is how it manifests?
Anyway it’s a real bummer when it happens, especially when one has some top-class snark to share.
