Maybe their comment retrieval system is broken.  I manually edited the
link that I sent because when you click on their "view all" button, it
puts the number of records that it is aware of here:
"start=1&end=###records###"  That effectively limits the query to this
number of records. Since I assumed that more records would be added by
the time people clicked the link, I changed this number to 2000.
That's why all of the comments are displaying.  I assume that this is
because the method they use to calculate how many records result from
the search is broken.  It could also be a hack to only show certain
records when you click 'all records.'  Either way it's a poor design
and should be changed.
