Thanks to some feedback from John AE5X, I've disabled the requirement that you sign up for an account on my blog just to be able to post a comment. Honestly, I had forgotten that my blog was setup that way, and didn't realize what a pain that barrier was imposing upon potential commenters. From now on, I'll have to approve your first comment to the blog, then any comments after that should be immediately posted.
I'd like to thank all of my readers and I hope that the new commenting setup will encourage you to participate more actively in the blog. I would love to hear from you!
