This post up has been bumped again to make sure people see the new commenting policy. Newer posts from Tuesday are below. Please take special note of our Autumn Fundraiser.
I will never say a bad word about those who wish to remain anonymous when posting comments on the Internet. I have some experience in the matter and know very well what it can cost to write about Politically Incorrect subjects under your real name.
But please, pick some kind of name and stick to it. I don’t care if it is Canadian Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Gray Unicorn or Zeus. Just pick any random name you can think of and stick to it as much as possible when posting comments here. That way, it is possible to create something resembling an online conversation, which is very hard if you have “anonymous” vs. “anonymous” all the time.
Readers have been complaining that Google/Blogger makes it difficult, if not impossible, for them to log in when they want to comment. Now that we are moderating comments, it occurred to me that there’s no reason not to allow “anonymous” comments, with no log-in required.
I’ve just set the comments so that log-ins are no longer necessary. For those who have been having trouble registering or logging in, try commenting anonymously. You may then sign your comment, or not, as you wish. Anonymous or otherwise, any comment that stays within our guidelines will be accepted.
