Please register before commenting

Take some time to register under your name or some screen name soon so that you can continue to leave comments relatively freely after Dec. 1. It will benefit all of us if we can eliminate most of the "anonymous" comments and replace them with some kind of name.

After you click on the comment line, a new screen shows up that displays the comments and gives you the option to "Leave your comment."
Below the comment box, you have the ability to "Choose an identity."
There you can sign in with a Google or Blogger screen name (or to create a Google account by clicking the "Sign up here" line).
You can also use an OpenID account, which is a great idea if you want to write on other blogs, too. It's widely used across the web.
You can also click on name/URL and fill that in. Or you can use Anonymous.
What I'm urging is that everyone take one of the first three options when commenting so we can get to know each other's screen names. Mine is simply "Steve Collins" which makes me painfully exposed. But yours can be whatever you want. It doesn't have to be your real name. It's just an identification that you choose to use.
I'm doing this because I'm sick of all the Anonymous potshots people are taking. At least use a screen name if you want to operate relatively freely.
After Dec. 1, the only anonymous postings I'll allow are those that are level-headed and at least aiming to be nice.

Here's something for you to ponder. You wouldn't know good sentence structure from a dilapidated structure. Case in point: your sentences.

Steve....we illiterate folks don't know all the terminology...so have probably screwed this up.

Steve Collins said...

Patti can do it! And so can the rest of you!

Confused said...

Let me see if I get this right ....



This Blog gets recognition for being the best ......



Soooooooooo ......

Naturally ....


it needs to be fixed ?!?!?!?!?!?!

Steve Collins said...

It would make the blog better.
Besides, there's a city election next year, and it will be more interesting for all of us if every comment is not from "anonymous."
