We've decided to re-institute comments after some careful consideration and a little cleanup work. We're still in the process of removing content that just doesn't meet our standards of good taste even if those comments include solicitations for cookie recipes. (We'd forward those particular readers to epicurious.com, a site where your sweet tooth can be satisfied without boring the rest of us with your culinary ignorance.)
Over the next few weeks we'll be working to remove the offensive and the just plain stupid. In the meantime we'll being moderating the comments on this site. You'll still be able to post anonymously but we'll only allow posts that have something to do with the topic at hand and don't include language that would make a sailor blush because that won't make the cut either. Feel free to disagree with us or with any commenter just do it within the bounds of good taste. So let the games begin... again.
