Annoying WordPress changes

It seems that WordPress, the platform on which this blog is hosted, has made some rather annoying changes to their comment policy. They no longer will let you comment with just a name/email/URL without “logging in” first.  Also, the “Notify me of follow-up comments via email” box is automatically checked, and if you forget to uncheck it, your email box may fill up quickly.

No, it’s not you, it’s WordPress.

I apologize for the inconvenience this causes (Captcha phrases on Blogger’s platform are just as bad, it’s a lose-lose), and I have to imagine that WordPress will reverse this policy in the near future.  Meanwhile, I’ve set this blog so that you don’t have to leave an email address when you comment, but then the picture next to your comment will look pale and lifeless, rather than your usual vibrant selves.

More on that here, on Flurrious, written by another blogger equally ticked off about that. Click on over… it’s a fun rant read.

But please keep on commenting.  Your comments keep me inspired and keep me going.
