After numerous complaints about the infeasibility of commenting on Stationary Waves (that means you, BA and CH), I've taken the drastic step of eliminated word verification from comments. That means now even robots can comment here.
If all this results in excessive spam, I may elect to "moderate" comments, which you should all know doesn't mean real comment moderation. I believe in letting people speak their minds. I'm taking steps to facilitate that. I hope that this doesn't result in my having to approve every non-robot who wants to participate in the discussion, but it may.
If it does, I will likely have to ditch Blogger once and for all, and transition the blog onto another platform. For now, though, let's see if this works.
