In order to post comments here, you need to register. After review, I approve the registrations … or not.
I impose registration here for a couple reasons. First, there are really creepy people out there and we don’t need their creepiness around here. Second, there are bots and spammers and other slimy parasites to fend off.
I don’t automatically approve registrations. If I don’t see enough information in your registration or if, and I get even a twinge of suspicion, I don’t approve it. I delete it.
So, if you register, providing a bit more information about yourself tells me a) that you are not as likely to be a creep, or b) you are not a parasite.
I am unlikely to approve registrations that simply give initials or have some words in no language I can fathom. Normal is good.
