If you write comments, please register at TypeKey
Like many blogs, we’ve had a lot of trouble with spam comments. For a while now, we haven’t even let comments go up without first inspecting them, which is a bit of a pain for commenter and inspector (me) alike. I’m pleased to announce that you can now use the TypeKey Authentication Service—which is free and reputable—to post comments immediately. Signing up only requires a name and e-mail address, and your deciphering one of those graphic code thingies that frustrate software spiders. Once acquired, your TypeKey name and password will work on many blogs created with Movable Type. Please register.
We are still allowing comments from unregistered, even anonymous posters, but we have to deal with hundreds of spams a day to make that freedom available. It is tempting to simply limit all comments to folks who are TypeKey registered.
