Since the blog is under constant attack by spammers and nefarious ne’er-do-wells, I use the “about you” field in particular to screen registrations.

Manducat in the hat
I, for one, do not weep that there are dozens of comments under a post here, rather than hundreds. You have seen what vile fever swaps comboxes become at the Fishwrap and other catholic sites. I’d rather have fewer and better comments, than the soul-annihilating feculence in evidence from the liberal dissidents and heretics. I can’t screen every possible comment here for charity, but I try to keep an eye on things.
