Fantastic wire feature

Okay so I hate forums. I hate them so damn much I think it's high time I make it so I don't have to read them anymore.

Comments, however, are awesome. What a conundrum, how come latewire isn't considered a forum? There's a very subtle difference: forums are gay.

I decided that with a couple free hours this afternoon I should dust off my PHP and fix it so we don't have to deal with this crap anymore.

Therefore, now when you click "view comments" on any article here, it'll show you the article and dump all the comments in STRAIGHT AMERICAN STYLE TEXT BOXES all in an order at the end of the article. Yeah, almost like a blog, except this isn't a blog, because blogs are also gay.

I'm gonna go get drunk now. Happy 31st.

UPDATE: I'm not planning on opening up guest commenting, since I don't have the time to implement an anti-spam system, or sort through the junk when said system fails. Just freakin register.

Boo! I'm th' ghost of forums past..

But seriously, nice work -- I like the 700 point font for "REPLIES"

Just now modified the "archive" at the bottom of the main page.

The top shows the last 50 posts. The bottom has a table with the rest.

Google's hating on us because we dump everything on the front page, this will shore it up a little.
