Swrrly, I'm interested in your take as a public health specialist on the safety factors of the BU lethal pathogen lab in Roxbury.

Adam, This new feature

"Notify me of follow-up comments posted here"

defaults to all comments.

Can you set it to default to no automatic notification and let us choose the other two options OR let us choose a preference in our account setup?

I really don't want to have to select an alternative selection in order to not receive notification by email every time someone else posts a comment to a thread. ... or maybe you could poll your readers to see what they want as a default.

Although it doesn't look like any option is working; I'm not seeing any outbound messages.

Thankfully, all crazy people are crazy before they become crazy, so they'll be easy to identify and exclude in their employment screening process.

Stupid terriers... not raising my kids near a "Biolab"

Speaking as a layperson who knows almost nothing about this topic...

I really would've preferred to make BSL4 staff commute to a compound out in the boonies with a security perimeter and some kind of buffer against accidental releases.

I would even give them their own shuttle buses, so that I don't have to literally "rub elbows" with them on the T. :)
