Commentary

Another of my brave and ignorant attempts to get the old Haloscan comment system working has failed.

Are you still having problems with commenting? I don't understand why it worked and then didn't. And why some people can still sign in with their blogger identities, and some can't.

Suggestions? They don't have to be technical: they can be practical advice on revenge strategies, and so on...

Trying to post using the "other".
How postmodern.

what about a piece of paper with some pen marks on it and a stamp?

Heidi, not anonymous!

It's a bugger when you have to concentrate all your efforts on the medium rather than the message. McLuhan must be turning in his urn.

Allo, allo love

pluvialis said...

Aha! Matt! How did you do that?

Matt Mullenix said...

Just signed in. I guess I get special consideration, being a well-known American falconer.

pluvialis said...

And renowned author of some seriously excellent books, of course...

Benjamin said...

I. Can't. Post.

Grr.

Benjamin said...

Ooh, tell a lie!

I previewed it first, not sure if that helped?

(also I strapped a stuffed bird to my arm in the hope of fooling the system into thinking I too was a famous falconer)

pluvialis said...

Ha! Strapping a stuffed bird to your arm worked! It's handy trick to have — works in all sorts of situations. You are already famous, anyway, Book Pirate....

Benjamin said...

It worked for Blackadder, as I recall.

(And I think you'll find that's 'infamous')

SECOND try as "Anonymous".

(But still can't get in as myself).

Matt Mullenix said...

OK. I just wanted to see if it would help to have a big stuffed Pluvialis on my fist?

Matt Mullenix said...

Damn! Blogger even screws up my slapstick:

Pluvialis on fist

Benjamin said...

There's a fisting joke there but I'm damned if I'm going to make it...

Matt Mullenix said...

Crude, crude.....

Ben are you SURE you're not a falconer?
