A few months ago, the possibility to comment freely and anonymously on posts was suddenly cut off. I received demand letters from certain lawyers for a certain trading firm, and decided to stay on the safe side. While checking my rights with my own lawyers.
Not surprising, comments disappeared almost altogether when registering was required. Too much hassle. Although one of the few registered comments was pretty funny. But fair enough, free commenting is back again – it wasn’t a software glitch. Just missed the comments.
Of course, no IP addresses have been handed over to any lawyer. Privacy of visitors and commenters is safe. Old posts will be closed for comments after 30 days. Cheers.
