Too many stupid comments

I changed my mind MAX is right, no more anonymous comments. With an account we can at least track the comments of individual commentators and I don't really have time or energy to moderate comments in any sort of ongoing basis anyway but the quantity of ignorant comments has forced this change. Sorry to those who were not abusing this blog.

How does one become "a member of this blog?" I'd be interested in applying but have not yet been able to figure out the process. Thanks.

Max said...

If it were me I would disable anonymous comments.

You can still be anonymous, but have an account. Nobody is saying that your account has to have your real name in it, etc.

I suppose MAX but making an account can be a pain in the ass and then having to log in every-time is also a pain in the ass.

As long as the really stupid comments are never posted is good enough for me.

No more trolling

Al M said...

OK MAX you win, you're right on this one.

Ok, I'll rephrase my question. How do you open an account on this blog?

I'm assuming that to have an account and be able to initiate a topic that you'd have to be a personal friend of Al and have proven posting integrity?

Al M said...

To be a member of this blog you have to be a personal friend of mine or I have to know you pretty well on the net

h. h. said...

I'm sorry, disregard my previous posts. I see that Al has sent me an email with instructions. I'll study it to see if I can learn the process. Thanks, Al.

Just to be clear:

There are three levels we're talking about:

1) "Anonymous" -- no sign in required

2) Account holder (i.e. have to have a google account or other OpenID account); anybody can do this.

3) "member" -- like #2, but Al also lets you post your own entries to his blog.

I'm suggesting #2 to leave comments, not #3.

Apparently you got it HH!

Hi, Al! Just wanted to see how you're doing.
