I am experimenting with a new comment recording system. From the homepage, you can leave comments have you ordinarily do by clicking on “comment” at the bottom of the post. Alternatively, if you click on the post title itself, you will open the post a new screen with the new comment box at the bottom of the post.
This new comment box does not require registration. It does, however, allow the readers to express whether or not they agree with what others have said. I rather like this feature because it allows the readers to regulate the content of the comments. In most studies of online communication, this self-regulating feature typically fosters more communication and a decrease in the infamous tendency of online conversations to degenerate into flame wars. While flame ware are not a problem here right now, but readership is growing on a regular basis (we are currently some 200 strong when I factor in rss feeds, email subscriptions and regular readers who surf in).
So, try out if you would the new comment system and let me know either in the comment box of by email what you think.
