Anonymous no more

After a recent bout of oh-so-constructive criticism, I've decided to finally take the plunge and disable anonymous commenting, at least for the time being. I'm not to the point yet where I mind people making assclowns of themselves on my blog--it happens infrequently enough to be amusing instead of annoying--but if you're going to be an assclown, you're going to have to put a name on it.

Incidentally, while I haven't exactly adopted it myself, this seems like a good place to quote Ragnell's brilliant comment policy:
My comment section is not your blog. You want to take a tangent, be abusive, or write a book on how you agree/disagree with me?

Get your own blog. They're free.

Believe me, if I could force people to read my blog, I would. So far, though, all my visitors are voluntary. I welcome disagreement, dissent, criticism, and advice, but at least make it halfway constructive. If that's too much for you to handle, then you can click the little red "x" at the top of the window, or you can click the little orange "B" and start your own blog. I promise, I won't come over there and berate you with inane whining. All I expect is the same courtesy.
