Comments of the Day: Register, All You Gays

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Some people were still scratching their heads over an Advocate list that said Houston was not one of the 15 most gay cities in the country.

Then readers noted how one of the criteria was how many residents were registered to gay.com, and they were off.

Ruh Roh said:

Something tells me the gay.com factor played heavily...Those of us in Montrose, West Hollywood, and Chelsea need only to drive/walk/train to "our" neighborhoods and hang out at our multiple bars to bag a trick as opposed to having to skulk around on gay.com in between suicide attempts because we live in sh*t towns like St, Louis or Minneapolis...

To which Katy replied:

That's what my gf said when I mentioned the article: "Oh, we're supposed to register as gay to be counted?"

If I was gay in St. Louis, I'd probably spend a lot of time online, too...
