I’m posting the new thread early (and before I’m finished the Saturday comic, alas, though I promise I’m working on it) because the Phorum–the haunt of Piled Higher and Deeper fans–has been overrun with spam and shut down for a week or so. This sort of thing has happened before, and WoB has always offered up its comments section as a sort of Web-based refugee camp. Come one…come all…come avoid people trying to sell Viagra and various other products. Here, there are only virtual cookies and vigorous discussions as to what the bleeding heck is up with Casey lately. Hurrah!
