Moving Day


Hi everyone.

Going forward, all new VSB content will be at

Please go over there and sign up for Kinja (if you haven't already) with the same name as your Disqus account, and I'll add you. There's a live piece up about Insecure, so leave your comments there.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I'll try to get to them.

See y'all soon and shit!

(Also, if you're seeing all of this and thinking WTF??? here's a quick explainer for you.)

Damon Young is the editor-in-chief of VSB, a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times, and the author of What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker (Ecco/HarperCollins)

Anyone else getting frustrated with the forums over at The Root?

Recommendations to make the The Root forums more usabler, in descending order of importance:

1) Allow sorting by Newest / Best, not just by Oldest.

2) Load greater numbers of comments without having to keep hitting "Load More Comments".

3) I think I see the logic behind the "Pending Approval" default. But is there some way that users could be flagged as "Approved by Default", and then someone goes in and flags long-time VSB commenters?
