Long Live Comments

Alright let’s try again.

The signal to noise ratio on comments is getting out of hand. There are trolls trolling trolls and the ban list is almost at 100 IP addresses. I decided to eliminate commenting completely but after looking back on older posts I noticed there are a lot of productive discussions that expand on the topics I write about.

So I want to backstep and try registration first. In order to comment you have to registered. You can change your password that is sent to you and add a web site to your profile that is automatically linked when you comment. (The cool thing about being logged in is you can see the titles and times of upcoming posts.)

Let’s check back in a month and see how it worked out.
