  1. This submit is actually helpful. I am able to override author’, email’ and url’ default settings, but I’m not able to override comment_field’, it is getting duplicated, i.e. the default textarea is also appearing with my custom comment textarea. Any help would be appreciated.


  2. Hello!Others have voiced my confusion above, but it’s awesome sometimes to add for the melee. I have been signed up since the middle of January, but have three letters. They’re wonderful letters! But similarly, I’d like to know if this is just the process of your dust settling or if this is to be expected?Thanks!


  3. Got my first letter yesterday! Loved it. I feel like I am a component of something fantastic that is just starting to come about. Feeling a strange feeling of community around it all. Maybe you are on to something here! Who would have ever assumed that persons would essentially print out words on paper just to have it sent with the mail to another person’s mailbox. Next thing you know, peoe will likely be growing their own food and walking or riding bikes everywhere. It’ll never ever perform, damn progress.
