Update on commenting
So, the folks here at Bigthink have been working on improving commenting for Eruptions (and all the BT blogs). I am happy to say that we've had a number of changes that will help - and some bugs are still being ironed out. A quick summary of what is new and improved:

- Formatting is now done with coding from Textile. A subset of the total Textile formatting works in the comments:
This should allow for a lot easier commenting and discussion on the post from the blog. As always, if you're having problems or have suggestions for improving the commenting, send me an email at eruptionsblog <at> gmail.com. Thanks for your help so far (and your patience!)
UPDATE: Got word that some of the weirdness comes from the spam filter for comments - it is rejecting a lot of the obvious "test" comments. So, for the time being, limit the testing as best as you can - if you have trouble posting a normal comment, please let me know!

She met mere mortals with and without the Vatican's approval.
- For centuries, the Virgin Mary has appeared to the faithful, requesting devotion and promising comfort.
- These maps show the geography of Marian apparitions – the handful approved by the Vatican, and many others.
- Historically, Europe is where most apparitions have been reported, but the U.S. is pretty fertile ground too.
Arranged marriages and Western romantic practices have more in common than we might think.
In his book In Praise of Love (2009), the French communist philosopher Alain Badiou attacks the notion of 'risk-free love', which he sees written in the commercial language of dating services that promise their customers 'love, without falling in love'.
