    Thanks SoylentNews, I might well have missed this if it wasn't for this article. Now I've really got something to look forward to on Christmas day!

    Hey, the comment counts on the home page for the most recent stories are showing as zero. Until I clicked on the story I thought I was the only one nerdy enough or addicted enough to be commenting on Christmas eve but I guess something broke.

    Merry Christmas Soylentils!

    Like all your fellow Soylentils, perhaps?

      Shouldn't you consider the possibility that it's the complement of the set of fellow Soylentils that's broken?
