Comments are now open to everyone

After an overwhelmingly positive response to our question, we’ve made a change so anyone can leave a comment without a Facebook account. However, that means you’ll need to register first if you haven’t already (click the link in the upper left of the site). That registration will work across comments, neighborhood groups and the forum.

We switched to Facebook a couple years ago after an onslaught of spam and a steady deterioration of civility. However, we’ve installed a new forum with great spam protection, and the conversation there has been more civil than ever. We also believe that enabling anyone to participate is important. But we will enforce our comment rules, and we won’t have any patience for trolls.

Meanwhile, if you’re a big fan of Facebook commenting, you can certainly comment on our posts on our very popular Facebook page. If you have any questions or concerns, please drop us a note at tips@myballard.com.

I’d become used to not even clicking on the comments, so this will be a nice change. Thank you, Geeky Swedes!
