#@!% Comments

I've switched The Wheel over to a Facebook commenting system. There are some advantages, but there are disadvantages as well. For one, you have to have a Facebook account to comment (or Yahoo! or Hotmail). I hate that, but most people are on Facebook now, right? For another, the "Recent Comments" widget won't show any Facebook comments. I'll be deleting it in due course to avoid confusion.

Going forward, new comments have to be entered using the Facebook comment box. I'm leaving the old style comments visible, but if this is confusing, I might end up hiding the old comments. But I'd rather not do that. Dilemma, dilemma. I know...first world problem.

The rules for commenting remain the same. Comments are welcome, but anonymous comments are not. Keep it courteous, keep it clean, keep it on topic, and always advance the conversation. Comments in violation of that policy may be deleted from this website.

The old-style commenting method (native Blogger comments) is returning. Facebook comments are going away. Why? Just time for a change, maybe. I hate Facebook, maybe. Blogger's native commenting system is better integrated with Blogger (obviously). For one thing, the "recent comments" sidebar is returning, too. I have even re-enabled anonymous commenting, although I ask that you at least identify yourself in the text of your comment. We'll see how that goes.
