Would just like to note how pleased I am that, after having the site up for some time, we are finally getting some comments on stories from readers.

One of our goals all along has been to build a vibrant community of progressives across the state – not as an organization, but simply as a group of people who “know” each other through this site.

For the longest time, we got readers, but no interaction. We’ve tried closed comments (you have to log in), open comments, forums, and now back to open comments. Open comments can be problematic because of spam, but I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Thanks to those brave souls who have dared to actually leave a comment. And to the rest of you – jump in!
