You may have noticed that comments on this blog have been behaving strangely for a while when attempting to reply to someone else; it turns out that while increasing the maximum depth of nested comments to fix an entirely different issue I accidentally turned them off completely. Whoops!
My amateur blog mistake has been fixed, comment with wild abandon.
(If problems like this pop up in future please let me know. The interface I use to view and reply to comments is completely different from what you see, so I won’t notice issues right away)
