Sometimes I think the (forced) move to a new server and the subsequent upgrade to Movable Type 3.121 with Typekey comment verification was just not worth the trouble. Since the changeover (11/12/04) and the commenting has been seriously buggy, comment spam (which, thankfully, has not appeared live) has plagued me on the administrative end. Consider me less than impressed with MT and its maker, Six Apart, right now.
But here is a little good news: The commenting system appears to be operational now. I encourage you to comment — and it should be easy. You have the option of registering theough Typekey, which will enable your comments to go “live” right away. Or you have the option of not registering. A reader’s first unregistered comment must be approved before it will be visible on the site, but after that (fingers croxsed), you should not need to be moderated.
You can actually help me out in this regard: If you are not a comment-spam scumbag, please pick a post and comment on it. If you have Typekey, sign in — or consider registering. If you opt not to register, please comment on two or three different posts. This will allow me to test the works and make sure everything is up to snuff. I have tested on my end, but some outside help will ensure that all is well.
I thank you in advance for your assistance and for your patience.
