From the looks of this blog, we know you guys like to comment on things. We also figure a good amount of you have not been able to escape the #1 time-sucking world of Facebook, which leaves us happy to announce that all of the articles on our main site, Kveller, now give you the option to leave comments through your Facebook account.

So, quit holding your tongues, and start getting back to us on stuff like making Mommy friends, skipping the circumcision, and Lisa Loeb’s obsession with summer camp.

Just don’t get mad at us if you get into any classic comment wars.
