    @Stephen Snowder Hey Bwog, I don’t mean to be a stick in the mud but I wish you weren’t giving advertising space to a payday loan company. Those companies, pretty much without exception, exploit the poor and people in bad financial situations and charge obscene interest rates, often getting the people who take those loans into more trouble than they’d been in in the first place. I know you have to pay the bills but there has got to be a better way.

    @dear bwog, Is there any way for the mobile theme that is used by default on mobile devices to show the thumbs up/thumbs down feature of the comments?

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
