Our Week In The Web: February 6, 2015

This article is more than 5 years old.

Now, we recognize that it's entirely possible that you missed our call for email notifications last week. That being said, considering that we received a grand total of zero email-comment-related emails this week, we're going to go ahead and say that that comment forum is not one the lot of you are interested in pursuing moving forward. You're more than welcome to continue to email us your thoughts and comments — we encourage you to do so! — but note that we probably won't be able to read said emailed comments live on air during the broadcast. If we're wrong, and email is a forum you want to pursue for commenting, email us! But until such a time, we're sticking to the Facebook / Twitter / Disqus methods that have served us well up to this point. Also, the Pats won the Super Bowl.
