It has been a while since I have posted a reminder on comments to this blog.
Here is how it goes...
To make a comment on a blog post, click on "Post a Comment" at the end of the post. After the comment has been sent, send a separate email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your full name and a phone number for phone contact. I will then make contact you by phone to verify the comment and the name and identity of the commenter.
Verification of your name and identity is intended to prevent someone else from putting your name on a comment and also to ensure that there is an identifiable person behind a comment.
If you request anonymity after verification due to fear of retaliation or for some other reason, the comment can be withheld or posted as "anonymous."
The procedure for "Anonymous Comments" is outlined at the right of this blog under the "About Me" section.
If you want to send some information or provide a news tip, you may use the same email address (email@example.com).
