I’m commenting my own posts when I want to add new content and links to an article.
If you have an ID on Yahoo, AOL, WordPress.com, flickr or several other services, you can use OpenID right now to log in to billso.com
This blog also supports Gravatar.
To leave a comment, users may log in with an OpenID, Gravatar or an ID from billso.com. (Added 5 April 2008)
I have enabled direct commenting to many of the article pages, but I do review, edit and delete comments because of privacy and spam issues. I have far more spam robots that want to post free ads on my site than I do actual readers. I find myself agreeing with James Farmer: comments that users post into a blog require a great deal of my time and resources to manage. Comments are twee.
Readers can e-mail me their comments, too. In your email, please include the phrase “I give billso.com permission to post my comments”.
Sometimes I refer to old articles in my blog, and those will appear as direct comments.
TRACKBACKS AND PINGS
Bloggers are welcome to post their own comments in their blog, along with a link to my article. My blog will automatically find and list these links as comments, although it may take 2 days for the comments to appear with my blog post. It’s not an instantaneous process.
