ADMIN: Add avatars to your TLC comments

We’re happy to announce that we’ve implemented Gravatar into our comments system, a feature that allows you to add an avatar of your choosing to your comments (see B.K.’s example here).
Here’s how it works. Go to Gravatar and sign up for a free account. Upload an 80×80 pixel avatar into their system; they will rate it similar to the way movies are rated (only G-rated ones are allowed here, folks). Then, when you comment on TLC, all you need to do is enter your correct e-mail address into the box that asks for it, and our site will connect with Gravatar, find the avatar that matches your email address, and post it next to your comment. Neat, huh?
