The time has come, the walrus said (update)

I do trust today’s technical work will not do this to any oyster:

O Oysters,’ said the Carpenter,
      You’ve had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?’
      But answer came there none —
And this was scarcely odd, because
      They’d eaten every one.”

We’re on the verge of implementing a decent commenting system.  They tell us that the old commenting system will remain as is, until a certain button is pressed, but never trust software.

If it breaks, just let us know, please.

Update:  One oyster got eaten – and this is one with a pearl.  I’ll fix up that oyster today.  Another one plumb went to spam.  There is this thing where your email may be reported to a spam list just because somebody does not like what you say.  We tried a different email and it worked well.Next step is to write this all up so that it is understandable.

Thanks to those who tried and tested.

On this one we are not on the leading edge, but we are on the bleeding edge.

    There is a one click captcha on non registered persons. I think for future this will help a lot for junky comments
