Quick note to explain the username/password fields that now appear at the top of this blog. They only serve one purpose at present — to enable you to permanently bypass the gibberish-generator when adding a comment to my posts (and also, to prevent your comments from erroneously being quarantined by my secondary spam filter.) Many of you have complained about the gibberish thing, so I implemented this (rather than capitulate to the spammers… I’m way too stubborn for that.)
Anyway, there’s absolutely no pressure to register; you can keep commenting the old way and that’s perfectly fine with me. And if you do register, I won’t spam you, sell your email address to catalog companies, or anything similarly nefarious. I might ridicule your username (Mr. “MonkeyLuv4u”), but only in private.
