In response to a comment by TDavid in his own Make You Go Hmm weblog, which posted a trackback to my previous remarks on Rocketboom’s detonation, wherein he stated that he chose to avoid commenting directly because of the registration requirement:
I’ve eliminated the registration requirement for commenting here. You can all post semi-anonymous comments if you like.
Every time you post a comment, it goes into the moderation queue, where it awaits my approval (bad news for spammers), unless you’re a registered user who has already had a previous comment approved. Because “anonymous” comments cannot (reasonably) be validated as coming from a previously-approved commenter, anonymous comments will always go into moderation. This may prove almost as annoying as having to register, but I like having my several layers of anti-spam protections in place. C’est la vie. If moderation really bothers you, just register an account here — or do what TDavid did, and post somewhere else with a trackback to this site.
Let’s see if anyone cares. . . .
