Just a quick FYI: I am now allowing unregistered users to comment. However, I have turned word verification on. I know the damn things are hard to read, but I do want to make sure people can comment. I also don't want the blog to get spammed; I actually have already had one spam link posted.
I would ask all unregistered users to please sign off with a name so we know who we're talking to. I don't want anonymous sniping in the comments. If I get a lot of that, I will start moderating comments.
