So, comments are back. For now. Three things, though:
No more anonymous comments. Under any circumstances. I will delete all anonymous comments, regardless of the content.
If you're posting under something other than the name on your birth certificate, I'd like you to fill in all the fields that Haloscan asks of you. That's name, e-mail and web-page. Preferably yours, on that last one. If I have any reason to suspect that you're taking advantage of the relative anonymity of the internet to be a jerk, I'll delete your comments as well.
If you're posting under your real name, I'd prefer it if you filled in either your e-mail address or your web-page address. On these last two I'm willing to cut people some slack. I understand that not everyone wants to splash their information around on-line, so as long as you're not being abusive to me or other commentators, I'm willing to look the other way.
I'm sorry if this seems needlessly draconian, but my house, my rules, so to speak. When I started this site, I basically had to be talked into allowing comments. I'd seen how they can go bad on other sites, and I didn't want that to happen on a space I'd set up primarily to amuse myself with. The only reason I did put in comments was because, in general, other people enjoy being able to talk about the posts, and a comments section is the easiest way to let people do that. In other words, the comments aren't for me, they're for other people.
