Yeah, and what's with "the absence of editorial deletions"? I, for one, am getting a bit tired of trash (see e.g. this off-topic rant) being allowed to persist in the comments lately. I'm a paying customer and would like to remain so; I strongly urge our esteemed editor to maintain at least nominal standards of professionalism in the comments, lest they descend into the mess that drove me out of /. .
I understand that these are judgment calls, and that it's always easier to leave well enough alone. However, a major duty of an editor is to exercise editorial judgment. Compare and contrast the comment that started this thread with Leslie Hawthorn's comments in her LWN interview on gender in open source…there's more than a little irony there IMHO.
