Reader comments -- ahh, yes, the juicy goodness following a meaty post. [1.Local] ducks past the swinging doors to see what readers have been chatting about in the back room over the past week.

The only reason a lot of articles are stuck in BC is because of the huge surge in growth during BC which lead to a lot of articles being created then. In early BC a lot of articles were still stuck in classic.
