How to Comment: Update

I realized that some instructions in my previous comment post were unclear, so hopefully this will make things easier to understand.

You do not have to be registered to comment on my website.

In the nickname area, if you are not registered, just click either the Other or Anonymous button. If you choose Other simply make up a username and type it in the first field, the field for your website address is optional, and then click publish your comment. If you choose Anonymous then you don't have to have a username just click publish your comment.

If you are registered you can sign in, or just publish in one of the other two ways, by clicking one of the other two buttons. And if you are already signed in then you can choose any of the three options.

Also if you're wondering why there is a security code, here's the answer.

In this day and age when people have little respect for others, there are certain companies out there that will employ software robots to scour the Internet looking for places to post their advertisements, like comments on blogs and email addresses that are also a send mail link.

So to prevent this, an image security code was invented, which so far only humans are able to see and understand (it's made up of image files not text, basically it's pictures of letters). You type it in so that you don't have to sit around and read advertisements in comments all day.

Hopefully this will clarify things a bit.
