So, what are the chances of having the option to comment directly on news posts? I'd love to be able to leave that sort of instant feedback.

    Pretty much non-existent, I'd think.

    I think that due to traffic and bandwidth they'll keep the front page as a static cache on the server. Adding comments would increase the server load (as it would have to either render the page dynamically or reset the cache every minute or so).

    It's a great idea, and I'm for it - but there are too many issues involved implementing it and moderating it (spam, spam, spam).

    fuck your forums, fuck your administrator and fuck dynagrip for getting away with the long troll.

    Or you could post in SE's New Comic thread. People tend to comment on the news posts in there.

    Humor can be dissected, as a frog can, but it dies in the process.

    I hate to question people's intelligence, but I have a feeling you'd get a lot of people posting expecting direct responses from Gabe and Tycho as well. On the other hand, if something strikes you particularly wrong/right in their post, I don't think there's anything in the rules stopping you from creating a new thread in the appropriate forum to discuss it.

    TBH I don't think a site with that much readership being channelled into what averages out at one post a day would generate particularly useful content. Or, more accurately, the signal/noise ratio would make the whole thing redundant.

    Gabe and Tycho's posts are usually well written and to the point. I don't see the comments of the masses, some of which are drooling morons, improving on them.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Also, if you're desperate to get in touch with Gabe, Tycho, or Robert Khoo, emailing them is your best bet.

    If you just want your comments on the site to be heard by other PA readers, post in SE++'s new comic thread.
