Soooo… a while ago I ranted about the trouble with commenting.

And turns out that all this time, the comments on this blog were broken.

Welcome to the awesome year of 2010, where commenting on other websites is still a distant pipe dream!

I had forgotten that reCaptcha plugin has to be set up on per-blog basis and I had forgotten to set up the API keys. And the plugin obviously couldn’t scream and say “hey, the bloody API keys aren’t set up right”. It just elected to not show the captcha widget at all.

Major mess up here. Bad communication from the software. Yadda yadda.

It’s fixed now, so you can actually comment here without using OpenID. (And the OpenID is sorta flakey, and I can’t figure out what the hell is wrong with that.)
