Commenting on blogs is no longer open season for spewing anonymous bile and hatred.  The bad old days of anonymous Wild West commenting is dead. 

WordPunk requires all commenters be registered and we use OpenID to verify your identity.  We just published a Registration Page that teaches you how to set up and use OpenID so you can comment.

If you were using the “Movable Type” option to login here to comment, we now need you to use OpenID instead. 

The cool thing about OpenID is you may already have an account, but you don’t realize it yet.  If you need help, please use the Registration Page to contact us.


  1. It’s all about the ownership of actions and words, Anne. This blog is open — you just have to login first before you can submit a comment! If you visit blogs that are unmoderated and that allow anonymous comments — you’ll appreciate this policy of verification because reading that junque on the other blogs is and exercise in illegibility.

  2. Good to know everywhere who you are talking to. Why bother writing something if you won’t stand by it?
