It used to be that Blogger liked to restrict comments to registered users, unless you cared to leave anonymous messages. This was annoying, not least of all to your humble narrator, who enjoys the give-and-take of conversation and hoped to spark a few good ones here in the Hive. (Maybe I don't put out enough snacks.)
Blogger has heard your cries. Now you can toss your reactions out there, in a nice new window. I hope to be hearing from you.
