Changing All Those Changes

The pieces begin coming together as transition gradually becomes improvement. A few items to note, done in the hope of making it easier to post comments:

  • Posting comments will no longer require that irritating word verification. (That's the 60's-acid-flashback lettering you have to input to prove you're not a computer sending out spam.) Thanks to Cathy for a great suggestion on that.
  • I've opened up the ability to comment to anyone, anywhere, who has a computer. Since hardly anyone has a computer and the widespread use of the Internet is still years away, I'm figuring it's safe to do that.
  • Since, in the time it took to type the previous bullet-item another 600,000 sociopaths, miscreants, and other people with IQ's that would embarrass a slug have made their way onto the Internet anonymously, comments will be subject to review by the moderator before appearing on the site. Not to worry - the moderator's a reasonable guy, and he's looking only to filter out the spam that the first two bullet-items subject the site and its valued readers to. It is not intended to filter out dissenting opinions, though I can't imagine there could be any anyway.
  • The above notwithstanding, the moderator's tolerance for anonymous letters (which are permitted by the system when it's opened up to everyone) is very low, so you won't be suffering through a lot of those either.
And there you have it for now!

I wish everyone would turn off that annoying letter verification - it should be a feature to add if wanted not an automatic. It's the only thing that has annoyed me over here at Blogger!

I have a dissenting opinion!! Wait, no I don't. As long as you supply me with Diet Coke, I will have whatever opinion you want me to have. LOL

I hate that letter verification thing as well. I can usually desipher it, but sometimes it gets me too... I am so down with the comment moderation though....

I'm with Amy, give me a Diet Coke and I'll pretty much agree with anything you say.

However, I'm out of Diet Coke so ...

I'll still agree because I hate those word verifacation things. Especially when I mess up and have to repeat the process because I thought a I was a L or something like that. I also do the moderation so others don't have to use the word verification and to avoid the spam.

Have a great week, I think I better go to the store and get my Diet Coke so I'll be a bit nicer to my family and friends.
