I strayed away from Jalopnik because the last redesign was so broken I couldn't handle it anymore. Despite the new design, it appears this new format works with relatively few bugs, and I will be making my way back. However, it appears that I do not have sufficient permissions to comment in the normal Oppo, so I'm stuck in the original/beta/everyone/whatever Oppo...help? I figure that as a former starred commenter in the Oppo of old, I still have some street-cred left? maybe sidewalk-cred?
