About this page

Comments are not everyone’s cup-of-tea, but if that’s what works for you, then this page is a gift. It’s also a way for me to say thanks to all the informative useful comments that come in and to encourage this open-source form of education and mental-tennis.

Sometimes several threads are active simultaneously on this site, and some of the latest comments are hidden under 300 others, or in a year old post, so it seemed worth dedicating a page just to the most recent comments. (The sidebar is so small.) This is where you’ll find an automatically updated list of the latest comments.

I don’t know if this type of “comments” page has been done on other sites. Let me know if you find one!
