Regular readers may have noticed a slow down in comments on DeSmogBlog over the last while. You may have also run into some difficulties logging into your account and publishing comments.
This was all due to some big upgrades in the functionality of our comment section that had to do mainly with shutting down the spam-bots that seem to enjoy visiting our site.
We have re-opened all commenting functions and if you were running into problems posting comments you shouldn’t now. If you find you’re still having problems send me an email at: [email protected].
We have also added a commenting policy to DeSmogBlog that will hopefully encourage a more meaningful conversation and avoid some of the massive flame wars that we’ve seen in the past. If you think we’ve missed anything in our comment policy please leave suggestions in a comment below or send me an email.
