At Steve’s request, I’ve turned off the threaded comments and reinstated the “numbered comments”. This means that if comments are held up for moderation or deleted, references to comment numbers will go astray.
I’m also experimenting with a new plug-in to enable commenters to preview their comments prior to submission. This should help all of us who struggle with bad speling, bad html, bad paragraphing ((c) Steve McIntyre 2005) and just bad language which on second thought, you’d like to change.
If anyone has further suggestions on weblog modifications then please add comments to this thread only.
