No Comment


Oh Dear! I will comment and not complain about having to key in some weird non-word to verify that I'm a person and not some troll out to cause problems. And I would like to comment on all my favorite's blogs. But here's the problem: I'm not going to give out an email address in order to comment - as much as I would like to add to the blogs of some really cool bloggers.

So to those of you who have your blogs set up to require an email address before commenting, I'm still reading and enjoying. I'm just not commenting.

I hope you will understand.
And I hope you will continue to comment here.

It's the way they seem to know who you are before you even start reading the blog never mind writing a comment. Like having someone watching over your shoulder. Mind you, you can always get around it by typing in someone else's e-mail details.

You're not going to comment?
If you don't have a static IP your email addy can't be traced accurately. Mine comes from all over the shop.

You do know that if you Google your blog, all your info and comments come up anyway.

And of course we understand! I figure the Govt knows all they need to know bout me so privacy . . blah!

I have to put verification up to stop the spammers and I don't know if I can turn the 'email' thing off. If you know a way, let me know.
Just testing here and posting as anonymous to see if I have to leave an email address. It's me! Helen/Baino

I don't like it either.

LOL Alan! That would be mean, wouldn't it...typing in someone else's email address? I really don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but I just don't like the idea of my email address all over the internet. I can't see what possible use it can be with regard to commenting and find it unnecessarily intrusive.
