So the mod writes about it in a little post. Because Remedios wrote a great article and is getting slammed for it. No pile-ons, please. But supportive posting for a fellow GTer who was shared on the io9 mainpage is encouraged. So I'll reshare my comment on her piece now. It's a good piece, especially for the many Pacific Rim fans on GT. Also, reminder that if you unshare something, you best have left a post explaining why to the poster or moderator. That's forum etiquette.
ETA: Whoops, meant to include a link to the io9 share as well in case someone wants to read it but skip the comments.
