I’ve been discussing with FP’s IT guys your hate-hate relationship with LifeFyre. They have issued the following communique from their bunker: “If you are experiencing problems with the commenting platform, it will be best to email web@foreignpolicy.com to get the issue resolved. Please include the browser, operating system and device, and if possible, the versions of each. We will have our developers look into the issue and respond as soon as we can.”
