.., literally. Someone recently emailed me complaining that my posts required them to enter their name and email in order to leave a comment and that they were uncomfortable with providing their email address. I apologize – I did not know that the default setting was set to require that and I have changed it. I don’t know how many folks have been dissuaded from making a comment due to the site requiring name and email, but both fields are now optional (even though the form still says “required”). Getting rid of the word “required” is proving more difficult than changing the required behavior.) So if you have something to say and wish to remain anonymous you should now free to do so.
