This looks interesting and informative. I hope that your comments function doesn't lower the tone of your fine blog. Good luck.

BV: Thanks, Jeff. So far, so good. One option I have is to block anonymous comments. So far, no need to implement that filter. The trick is to achieve interactivity with appropriate filtration. Eventually the software engineers will come up with very sophisticated content filters to block topics, persons, phrasings, etc. The leading engineers can start a company called ProctoFiltration Systems, Inc. The idea being, not to block proctologists but rather the synechdochal correlates of the cynosure of their professional interest.
