Change to commenting system

Since the season has started, the site has been getting a lot of comments, many of which are anonymous. Fortunately, anonymous posting hasn't been an issue: there are no flame wars being carried out in the comments and no one is really trolling. However, I do like to interact with commenters and when you have 5 Anonymous posts, it becomes difficult to have a conversation. It is because of this that I have begun using the Disqus comment module.

The primary concern is whether or not people will have to login to comment. The short answer is no. Disqus allows you to login via Facebook, Google, Twitter, and a few other major platforms, if you want. You are also able to comment as a Guest. To do so, you need to supply an e-mail address (which won't be shown anywhere) and name. This will allow us to have more coherent interaction (hopefully).

If people really hate the system or comments start to die off, I'm willing to revert back to the old default system. I'm hoping that won't be the case, though. Any comments or concerns about the new system can either be discussed here or, as always, e-mailed to me at

Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need. See the link below for more info.
