After months of debate, I have decided the time has come to shut off commenting on the site. Quite some time ago, commenting via Disqus was turned off due to lack of use and it greatly slowed things down with significant user tracking that I didn’t approve of.
Comments were still on, but they were using the default commenting system, which isn’t that great of one. While anti spam has been working, the blog gets a lot of it and while it’s easy enough to flush on a regular basis, it’s just not worth it when the blog hasn’t seen a legitimate comment in five years now.
Because of that, I’ve decided it’s time to completely turn comments off. While this isn’t exactly an exciting update, I felt it was still one worth being transparent on.
