WordPunk Works with OpenID to Confirm Identity

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.
