Comment Registration is Back

Typekey is up and running and comment registration is back. Anonymous comments don't let readers know if they are coming from one person or different people. They are misleading because they give the appearance that multiple people share a position that might only be coming from one individual.

Also, without registration, I can't control the spammers, even with filters. I deleted more than 10 comments selling ringtones yesterday. Deleting comments takes a long time because of the rebuilding infrastructure here.

So, if you'd like to comment, set up a free account at Typekey. It will allow you to post comments at all blogs that use the service.

    Unfortunately this is not quite correct. It would be more accurate to say "If you are lucky it will allow ...". If you are not lucky it will not work for obscure reasons which no one will be able to explain. It does not work for me on one of my machines but fortunately I have others.
