Readers may have noted the recent advent of lowbrow links to external sites at the very bottom of each article — this wasn’t our idea.

Disqus, the service that handles our commenting system, recently ‘monetized their service offering’, which is a euphemism for ‘charging for something that used to be free.’

We’ve paid for the ad-free version of the service but so far the ads are still appearing. Bear with us, we hope they’ll disappear soon.
