So, the original post about the painting on the TV is more than 5 days old. I can’t go post another comment on it. After 5 days, the messages disappear from the front page and no longer allow new comments. Sometimes I want to make comments after five days, but I know you’re not going to scroll down and see if there are new comments, let alone remember how many comments each thing had the last time you looked.
So instead of placing a comment no one would see on a post that no one remembers, I have to post a new message about the status of the painting I was doing on the TV.
