I am no longer allowing anonymous commenting on the blog. I've been being hit with a lot of spam in the comments field. While I've managed to catch most of it before it gets out of hand, I don't have time to spend my day doing this. I also want the blog to be an enjoyable experience for everyone.
However, those of you with an Open ID can leave comments. Open ID is easy to set up and encompasses pretty much anyone with an LJ, AIM, WordPress, or TypePad ID. Or, of course, anyone with a Gmail account.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
