The Comeback

Yeah, well the jerk store called, they're running out of you!
- George Costanza

A combination of work and life means that we've not really been able to moderate over the last few days. This means that we've had to restrict comments to registered users. Apologies to those that prefer not to register, but it also acts as a good filter for those people who, in the same moment, feel so strongly about something that they will throw around all manner of silly accusations while making their point, but so indifferent about it that they can't be bothered to spend two seconds signing up.

Anyway, normal service will be resumed shortly.

Ah, I thought this was a permanent change! You're right about how quick it is to sign up. I can't understand why anyone would be hesitant about that given that you don't have to use your own name, and it saves a lot of confusion in discussions.

Yea, and you can have as many personas as you desire if the urge to troll is irresistible.

Now I understand....

Hope your work/life pressures are nothing too serious.

I wondered what had been going on, as I had attempted to post several times - then gave up. (I'd forgotten how to register!) Still, good policy I think. Farewell to the Anonymii!
Cat Man, happy to chat over a drink, but not debate. (Drink and debate do not mix with me beyond a certain point.)

Even now I'm having difficulty as my title did not appear with the above post. Oops!

And again... help someone. (Mind you have \I stumbled over another anonymous wway of posting, e.g., as 'Said'.
I've tried to pst as JPM. Sorry.

not so quick when you had the account but lost the log ins to use it. Anyway this is much improved and it would be better to not bring back the anonymous option but maybe allow people to post with a name as most of us did before.

Another vote for removing the anonymous option permanently.

I miss the comments, but not the confusion of attempting to work out if the arguing anons are different or multiple personalities...

Headhunter said...

So "..." is actually JPM?

betamatt said...

Is that Seinfeld quote a dig at the 'haters' with their chippy 'this site is racist/classist' claptrap? If so, well done. God, that was dull.

Mind you - serenity now, Nick, serenity now!

What? No more grouchy anon posts? How will we do the Festivus Airing of Grievances?

Betamatt - I love you. I was beginning to despair of ever finding a Seinfeld fan among BC readers, no matter how many quotes and references I inserted. Truly, you are master of your domain.

TM - thanks, all's well. Just incredibly busy and problems compounded by dodgy blackberry.

Gotta love the Seinfeld!
