Wounded Bird receives fewer comments now than ever before in the six years of its existence. I'm not complaining, simply stating a fact. Except for the most popular blogs, those with thousands of readers, commentary has moved from blogging to other social networks, such as Facebook, etc. When I disallowed anonymous comments earlier, due to the overwhelming numbers of spam comments coming through, mostly in the name of "anonymous", some regulars here were unable to comment because they were not registered with Blogger, Google, or one of the other blogging formats. Now, perhaps too late, I invite those readers back to the comments, because with comment moderation enabled, anonymous comments are permitted. I ask those who comment as "anonymous" to sign a name, any name, make up a name, when you leave a comment, so we can distinguish one anonymous from another.
My wish has always been to keep the comment function open and free, and, for many years it was possible, but no longer. Wounded Bird must change with the times. Thank you for your cooperation.
