I’m trying a new system for comments, called Disqus, you’ve probably seen it on other blogs. It works now, but the last 2 days of comments are being transferred, and may not show up for a day or so.
To comment you should create a free, anonymous Disqus account. It will prompt you and will require a real email address, which I can’t see unless you decide to make it public. However everyone can see comments to that same Disqus account no matter what website you made them on, so the paranoid, or justifiably nervous, might want to make an account just for use at UO M. You can also use your facebook account as a Disqus login, which seems like a bad idea.
At the moment, rather than create an account, you can just enter a made-up name and an email address. (I can see the email address you enter, so you might want to use a fake one.) But I’ll probably require Disqus accounts soon. As it is I get about 50 spam comments a day, trying to get people to click on some weird website, and it’s a pain deleting them all.
