Hello, all. This is just a quick post to let you know of a change we’re making to the commenting system on the website. For years we’ve used Disqus – which is a 3rd party system to manage comments in a nice, sleek format. For years, it worked well. And it was free.
However, they have decided in the last year to clog the free version with annoying ads and they made it pay-to-play. Now, they plan to tweak their ads even more and we’ve simply had enough. We’re not going to pay to have standard commenting features as this website does that already.
So you’ll notice a change to the system under each of the posts and how the comments display. If you’d like to leave a comment, you can do so by filling out the brief form and leaving the comment. Comments are approved to display. Please be mindful of the comment and forum etiquette when posting a comment.
The look and feel of this comment system will likely be tweaked slightly for aesthetics, but we’re reverting back to the website commenting system that is free to us with no ads.
And speaking of ads, we know they are annoying. But while they’re annoying, they do help us cover small costs associated with running the website. We’re going to strive to get rid of many of the ads on the site so the experience for you, the reader, is a better one. So bear with us as we make some small tweaks to the website in the coming months.
Thanks again for all of your support.
