Quick Update to Blog Commenting

I’ve updated the site’s commenting system a little bit. I’m trying out comments by email, which I will manually curate. This is a low-tech and fairly secure solution, though I understand it won’t scale.

Originally, I included a “mailto” link which would generate an email with the URL of the blog in the subject line. The problem with ‘mailto’ is that it opens the visitor’s default e-mail client, and most people use a web client like Gmail.

I’ve changed it to just keep the URL in an ‘input’ element which people can copy and paste into an e-mail subject line.
