QuillHello, all. Just a note to point out that I’ve changed commenting from the generic system provided by WordPress, to IntenseDebate. The advantage of this is that it allows comments to be posted using the credentials of a Twitter or OpenID account, or as a “guest” (using only an email address), obviating the need to create an account directly on the blog and then using it.

Many folks have Twitter accounts and/or OpenID-compliant accounts — even if they may not realize it (Google, Yahoo, AOL & WordPress.Com, just to name a few; here’s how to log in using those). It also provides commenters with added features, such as subscribing to any replies made to your comments or to all comments on the blog post, and voting on comments. This should make commenting on this blog easier, both to post and to manage, although I can’t rule out the possibility of snags somewhere along the line. Please contact me if you have any problems with commenting.
