This does not mean any kind of Clintonian triangulation of the blog.
It does mean that I've been trying to find ways to make it easier for you to comment AND for me to know that you have done so.
Currently, this should mean that you can leave a comment, no matter who you are. And it should mean that you can do so with a minimum of fuss- no word verification. Finally, I'll get a notice, no matter which post you comment on, which means that no one gets ignored, and nothing become irrelevant.
If there's any problem with the above, or if you think there's any way I might make this blog work more for you, please let me know.
