I figured I must have commented, and I did:
...here on io9. You are very good at quoting sources, referencing and even linking to actual scientific articles. Much better than most of the press. Keep up the good work and keep letting us review the data and make up our own minds.
Less than 5 months later, io9's new hire posted his first article.
And just because I am in a mood, I'd say the new guy, Strauss, deserves more criticism than he gets around here. He has more white man's guilt than any three Hollywood directors.
