The mods of fail-fandomanon put up a quick tutorial for a layout/custom comment page that looks like the original here. I just switched and so far it looks fine for a stopgap until livejournal lets me have my goddamn s1 style back or someone who feels they owe me their lives and wish to repay me by rebuilding my old style in s2. I swear I'd do it myself but my css is about a billion years out of date and I cannot for the life of me visualize negative margins no matter how logical I know they are.
In other news, I'm at work, and really, I think that's illustrative of my current feelings about my life and for that matter, the lives of others. Also? Gah.
