To say nothing of IE 6

I still strive to avoid reading comments at, but I also still get a kick out of this statement that precedes them:

We’ve upgraded Comments. The upgraded Comments do not work on Internet Explorer 7. If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9 and do not see comments, turn off Compatibility View by clicking the “broken page” icon at the right of the address bar.

It occurs to me that I never actually had IE 7; I installed IE 8 over 6. I still keep it around in case Firefox does something heinous to me, and given their absurd push-out-new-versions-like-Octomom schedule, I can reasonably expect that it will.

    It would be nice if some of those sites could upgrade the commenters. I never despair more for the human race than when I slip up and wind up reading the comments on some news story or YouTube clip….
