I'm often accussed of basing my political opinions on ignorance, to which I always reply 'why single out politics ?'. Take technical issues for example. Who'd have thought that merely making a few adjustments to the haloscan system would wipe out all the comments ? Well, yes, pretty much everyone except me. So all of this is by way of saying that if you think you left a comment, but now can't find it, you didn't in fact hallucinate - it's just been abducted by comments' pirates.
