    John, Can you describe what you see when you subscribe to comments?

    What should happen is that you get an email when the subject “[Subscribe] Comments on Living Freedom – please confirm”, with a “Confirm Follow” button.

    Clicking that button should send you to the “Subscription Management” page on, with the “Comments” tab open and displaying the message “Successfully updated your subscription!”

    Off topic, but HWFIW– I don’t get notifications for comments here anymore. I check the “Notify me of new comments via email.” box, but never get the “confirm” email anymore. Haven’t for months. This has also happened on a couple other WP blogs, but not all of them.

    Kent, do you have more than one WordPress account (for ex: I five, for the various sites I administer)? I’ve found that being logged in with one while commenting under a different email address seems to confuse WordPress. Other than that, beats me.

    “If you store your work in the Cloud, it’s accessible anywhere!”

    Um. Yeah. That’s not a feature.

    I’ve long been impressed with Rand’s accuracy for the decline of the US. That’s separate and distinct from her Objectivism notions, as I see it. My main gripe about the book is that it’s obvious that she never used one word when 200 would do. (That same talent is evident among lawyers, bureaucrats and politicians.)

    Train of thought derailment: I first read it at the tail end of the Beatnik era. Then came Hippies, so that led to Ferlinghetti and his “Coney Island of the Mind”–of which I just ordered a replacement copy from Amazon. 🙂

    Now just wait’ll the Asians also start suing for racial discrimination? They already are. See the NYT and Harvard Gazette.
