It’s so strange. I read that, and I applauded. But like with some other things I’ve applauded recently, the claps apparently didn’t register.

Fred Shirley tells me this has been happening to him to, with posts of mine where he’s sure he clapped, but the claps don’t take.

Darren Stehle , do you happen to know if this is a common problem? Is there a way to make sure applause works? I mean, short of actually checking back later?

Eric Griggs , I’m afraid to say that I’m a pop culture moron. I almost never watch films or television. I’m afraid that while I think I entirely approve of the thrust of your post, most of the details went right over my head.

I just don’t catch most of the references.
