Bice and Boneflour have both professed a preference for a $1 paid registration for commenting, and I only instituted moderation because it was a quicker fix. I’d rather not charge but either way registration is a good way to get instant feedback instead of waiting for a round of comment approvals. On the other hand the commitment and agency requirements are a surprisingly high hurdle for broken INTPs, who are likely the silent majority.
Let me know.
On a humorous note, you might think the banned spammers would have stopped writing their longwinded comments now that no one is reading them. You’d be wrong. The sheer amount of typing time that goes straight into my trash is frankly astonishing.
