This is weird.

Last fall, when I went to Australia, I took a hiatus from the Brunching UBB. I quickly went into bulletin board withdrawal, so I ventured into the Washington Post's OnPolitics forums. I didn't post very much there, because the volume of activity was so great, and too much of the conversation was about "$hrub" and "albore." But I did comment from time to time. This forum has a feature that sends you an email every time someone replies to a post you made (that is, they specifically comment on your post, not just reply to the whole thread). Today I got an email saying someone had replied to a post I made on August 24 regarding embryonic stem cell research. It's amazing that the same thread managed to stay active all that time, considering every new development in the debate among our leaders would have spawned a news story and therefore a new thread.
