That makes sense.  I think I misinterpreted Ryan's comment to be also
addressing other (possibly problematic) aspects of the new comments, but I
see that I just overlooked that variables should have been used and that
is probably all he meant by pointing out they were "hard coded".  That was
pretty dumb now I see.  I'll fix it.  Thanks for helping out here, and to
Ryan for noticing.
