Can’tact me:

Of late, I find myself contemplating leaving the comment section of this blog “wide open,” i.e. deigning not to require logins or even unique UIDs. Would anyone like to weigh in on this matter?

In addition, I have recently added a contact page; although wordpress is still the best way to get in touch with me. I check my email approximately once a month unless I am specifically expecting an email from someone, or for some reason. I have therefore listed such contact information in descending order of effectiveness. I have never, for example, even run a skype client under my publicly known name; and wordpress does not allow active skype URIs in any event. However, in the event that someone is feeling very, very lucky and happens to catch me in an especially amiable mood, I offer up my skype ID in the event that said individual should wish to dial me over and over until his fingers bleed.”

On an unrelated note, I believe the next pay service I may buy on wordpress by way of celebration of some goal achieved will be the “No Ad” service. Even though such ads are only presented on individual posts and only to logged-out users; still, unpredictable content rankles my aesthetic sense–such as it is.

  1. I tried an “open” comment option when I first started. Unfortunately, while I can filter out certain words, I couldn’t filter out….stupid. Okay, so stupid can still sign in but I figure, why make it easy for them? Yeah, I’m a little southern debutante snob but hey, I worked hard for that title. And by the same token, when someone says something that resonates or is kind or even if disagreeing, they are courteous, then I like to read the comments. I don’t get a lot of comments. Whether because what I write isn’t comment worthy or people are busy, I don’t know. I’m not making sense right now. I’m in the process of moving my 84 year old frail mother to a better place and if I could, I would hit a “don’t like”……Do what you feel you need to. If you have it open and it doesn’t work, put it back to how it was.

  2. I let anyone comment, although WordPress makes me approve comments from anyone whom I have not previously approved. I try to run my blog like Andy Warhol’s Factory–leave the door open and see who comes in. So far it seems to be working. I have some comments I simply ignore, but I haven’t deleted any or banned any users.
