Comments are back on, thanks to the Jay Allen's Comment Challenge plugin which should prevent most or all of the comment spam 'round here. (To comment now, there's just one more blank to fill out, and it's easy.) It's been enabled for a couple of days and I have had no comment spam so far.
It's funny, I've long been on the fence about having any comments enabled at all. Not least because of the same sort of observations that Joel Spolsky makes --
(Oddly, I've found that as soon as I shut off the possibility of getting feedback via comments, I immediately develop a desire for it. It's weird.)
Contra Joel, not all comment threads end up in nastiness. Clay Shirky expounds--
It's true, the places I know of with comment trouble are the ones with a lot of traffic; that hasn't been the state of things here for some time. So for now, unless and until comment threads here become an ugly place, I will typically leave comments open on a thread.
Oooo, I'll have to install this myself. I was patiently waiting for MT4 to solve my comment spam issues, but Jay's stuff is always great. And this means I don't have to wait!
Look, no image generator doodad with letters I can't read. For me Matrix 3 proved to me that there was ultimately no real depth to this whole Matrix-world-philosophy. After Matrix 2, people were almost ready to sign up for it as a religion. Aside from the serious missteps in Episode I (i.e. midichlorians), Star Wars could be a fine religion! I hope work picks up soon.
Matrix 3 was like watching the deleted scenes from the previous two movies--y'know, the stuff not good enough to make it to the screen. It was one of the few movies where I left the theater pissed that I had spent money on a *matinee*. All that time & effort to resolve absolutely NOTHING! Grrr.Add a comment...
