...because it is going to be on my "recent activity" page forever. And, unlike other sites with recent comments type pages, Vox always shows all the comments since your comment, 79 in my case, so happy scrolling! My comment -- a minor bug that I noticed -- was in January. Someone has commented in the post or added it to their favorites once every few days since then. No you can not delete your comments on other people's posts, I tried that. maybe I can get Vox Design to block me. Seems like they haven't posted to their own blog since January either.
Usually I just skip over the pestier interface design choices I see here -- stuff mostly works and that makes me happy -- but this one is harshing my post-AFD mellow.
