With all the social media we have now it’s amazing that something that goes back a decade or more is so complicated to deal with at times. I’m talking about blogs and comic strip posts. Not so much the actual posts, but the comments section.
What’s this Open ID crap and why is it so important? Same with Disqus. Worried about spam? Then add a moderation step, trust me, you won’t be inundated with comments, you’re probably not receiving any now due to the impossibility for anyone to comment with your current set up.
I think it’s important for cartoonists to engage with their readers. It’s imperative. So remove those roadblocks to your access, please. I have something to say and I want to say it, more times than not I end up shrugging away wishing I could have made my point on your current blog or comic post.
