Berry picker emails: Disqus still on strike! Day 2

Breaking News: Disqus still on strike! Day 2.

Thousands of disappointed blurkers and commentors have been unable to access Huckleberries comments for the second day in a row. Disqus remains on strike but refuses to state its demands.

Spokesman I.T. workers think that Disqus is just sad because its romantic overtures were rebuffed by Microsoft Word.

Oft time commentor Spudbob was quoted as saying, “I hate Disqus…. a bunch.” Sho-Con, HerbH, and Hmoff sent out a joint comment saying that they finally agree with Spudbob on something. Cabbage Boy said if he was in charge he would punch Disqus in the nose. A frustrated CindyH said that if she could just access the mainframe computer she would give Disqus a reprogramming… with a hammer!

Phadrus has 173 comments saved waiting for downloading whenever Disqus will allow him to do so. JohnA said, “Urban renewal is really cool because ….” Strangely, Dennis had no comment.

DaveO, on vacation in the Bahamas, could not be reached for comment.

For the record the comments feature is working— just not the LATEST comments tab. You know. The one WE ALL USE.

I'm heading out to hear my son play at Street Music Week. I hope to find the latest comments feature working when I return, but I wouldn't wager any cash.
