There has recently been a flurry of new registrations to comment. Great!
Keep in mind that I am not always near my computer and, therefore, I am not always able to review and approve registrations swiftly. It is rare that it take more than a day. Usually I get to see them withing a couple hours. Travel can interfere, along with other things of course.
In any event, check back once in a while. Sometimes I get emails from people who try and try to register only to find that they were already registered to begin with. In those cases I issue a new, temporary password.
If you are going to register, use that “about me” box on the form to convince me that you are not a vile spammer who deserves to roast in the deepest cinders of Hell for eternity. You don’t need to give me a biography or CV. Saying something, for example, about favorite reading, or a patron saint or confirmation name etc. is quick way to show that you aren’t a Russian porn monger trying the doorbell.
I am using the moderation queue more and more. This is how I keep the combox here from descending into fever swamp you see at other sites, especially liberal catholic swamps like Fishwrap.
Writing in the “about you” box: “my hero is Cardinal Burke” is never wrong.
