Survey Question

Quick question to all readers, frequent or infrequent… do you find the comment system to be adequate? I’m considering switching to the native wordpress comments, which means some additional features that would be good for me and you, including being able to respond to individual comments as a sub thread.. that way you know whos talking to who.
If I do it, you wont see the old comments anymore. I have them saved, but the public will not see them.

Leave a quick comment to say if you think the current comment system isn’t good.

UPDATE: OK, Ive now moved comments to the wordpress native system. Unfortunately several years of spam were sitting on the system. Now cleaning them up and losing many hours of sleep to them. But from now on you can not only comment directly below, you can also respond to individual comments OR leave a comment to the original post. watch below and you’ll see an example.

      Hey Cat.. glad to hear from you on this.. many people also chimed in on the other system all agreeing with you. So here we are.. new system.. hopefully the transition goes smoothly. Too bad the old comments will have to be archived and wont be visible to the public. Time to build new comment discussions.

    Look up and activate the Akismet Spam plugin for wordpress. It slows it down a good deal.

    Much nicer.

    Ditto for Akismet Then, use engtech’s ( auntie spam to easily sweep through the junk.

    PS– there’s some error message about threaded comments, but I’m blocking off-site scripts.
