While the total number of comments regarding this subject may not be very large in numbers, the overwhelming agreement among those commenters should be cause enough, to deserve a response from the editors of "Techrepublic"!
Currently there are 45 comments to this article, but more significantly, there are 186 votes cast in agreement (this does not include the few negative votes cast regarding proper responses)! How many other issues have garnered that many "like" votes among a similar number of comments? It appears that more of your readers have read & voted on the comments submitted, than have read & viewed the actual article.
If we cannot elicit a change in the format, we should at least deserve a response as to why. We know "you" are out there by virtue of "Mark Kaelin's" comment a few hours ago.
