Due to a rash of unpleasant comments from the sort of boorish carrion fowl that normally descend only after tough losses, I've decided to modify the comment policy here at the Phog Blog. For the time being, only registered users will be allowed to comment. It will also be easier to subscribe to comments, so that you'll be able to follow discussion more easily, and it should weed out the jerks (or make it easier for me to do so).
In any case, you can register here. I won't do anything with your email address, it's purely to encourage better discussion here.
