I would really appreciate it if whoever is responsible for this blog, if there even is anyone who is at this point, would tell us why it is still functioning so poorly, after 6 months of neglect. Setting aside the lack of almost any postings whatsoever – I still can’t see or read any comments after the first 10, no matter how many comments are actually posted or how high the comments number goes. Am I the only one having this problem? And why does the comments number usually keep going up and up if no one else can see past 10 either. Would someone please respond to this and tell us/me what’s going on with this blog at this point?

Hi Vicki – I believe I fixed the comments issue you identified. Thanks for pointing that out. With respect to your comment about “6 months of neglect,” sadly you are correct. The three primary people who wrote for this blog have, basically, run out of cognitive surplus (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cognitive%20surplus and https://www.ted.com/talks/clay_shirky_how_cognitive_surplus_will_change_the_world?language=en). I keep hoping it is a temporary problem, but it’s been temporary for 6 months now.

Christopher, thanks for the quick response. I’m just confused about why this wasn’t fixed when I raised the same issue 6 months ago. I do understand about the issue of a lack of cognitive surplus. But now at least for those who might want to discuss something, they can at least see what others’ comments. Thanks again.
