We're probably going to ditch WordPress for the leaflabs.com website and blog in favor of something simpler and more reliable. The forums won't change any time soon, though we are open to suggestions or requests.
Currently everybody can comment both on blog posts and here in the forums, which I for one find redundant. I'd like to simply link from blog posts to discussion threads here in the forums; would this ruffle any feathers? Disqus comments is another option but would be yet-another-account and medium to keep up with.
