How to comment here.

Hello! This post is for my non-Dreamwidth friends to have a go at commenting with OpenID. If you have a blog on Blogspot, Wordpress, LiveJournal, etc, then you already have an OpenID, and it would be great if you could use it when commenting, (a) so I know who the comment is from, and (b) so there will be a link back to your own blog in case other people find you interesting.

If this is too complicated, or if you don't have an OpenID, then "anonymous" commenting is fine, but please sign your name so I know who you are. I have things set up so anonymous comments are screened, meaning I'll have to approve them before they go through, but validated OpenIDs can comment freely.

The official FAQ for OpenID commenting is here, but there are also some illustrated tutorials here, here, and here.

Please have a go at commenting, and let me know (kake@earth.li) if you have any trouble with it. Also, let me know if you'd like an invitation to create a Dreamwidth account yourself, since I have some spare! (You don't need an account to comment and read.)

Can I comment without a captcha now I've told it my email address and clicked on the verification link?
