Touch wood I now have the anti spam measures in place to allow commenting without needing to register in place. So I’ve turned off the need to register.
First comments by any reader will always need approval but after the first one if you use the same name/email it should, in theory, post your comments immediately. There’s going to be an element of trial and error here and settings may need tweaking as we go but it’ll be much easier, and friendlier, if logging in isn’t essential just to say “Hello.”.
So please do add your thoughts, they will be much appreciated.
