Update: Comment moderation is on because the ASH troll will fill this place with junk posts otherwise. Since I don’t currently have time to watch over the blog, I can’t just let him leave his mess everywhere.
Update Update: Nope, back to first-comment stuff. As you were.
No login required, but some comments might take a while to appear because I’m not going to be here as much as usual for a while. I’ll certainly be here every day and will put comments through as fast as I can.
This place is set up so that I have to approve your first comment. After I’ve done that, you are free to comment at Will. If Will isn’t available you can comment at me.
You do have to put in an Email address and username (call yourself anything from Ann O’Nymous to Zippy the Huhne, as long as you use the same one each time it’ll work) but here’s the kicker – it does not have to be a real Email address. If you don’t want to put your Email here you can make one up. As long as it’s in Email format, it works like a password and generates a little picture beside your comment that will always be the same.
That Email, real or fake, is your password. Once your first comment gets through you’re good to go. If you do use your real Email, nobody will see it and if a troll gets in, that’s no problem either. I can unapprove them and they’re gone.
The website link is optional. If you don’t have one or don’t want to post it, no problem.
So you can still post anonymously without revealing your real Email or your website, it’s just that you’ll have to remember that fake Email.
If you forget it and have to invent another one, you’ll be in the ‘approve’ list again. As long as you’re not trolling or spamming that’s not a problem. It will just mean a little delay.
