So my little troll quit commenting for awhile but has resumed his harassing ways. He says he’s posting a “difference of opinion.” He is not. He must be specifically searching for content to disagree with and fume (something I don’t understand – if I don’t like a blog’s content I just don’t read it; life fucking sucks badly enough as it is without having that unnecessary stress).
OK, here we go. I am now requiring all commenters to be signed in through either WordPress or a social media account to comment. This is to make tracking easier on me and there is no longer any anonymity in the comment process, nor can anyone use a fake email address, etc. anymore. This will make it easier for me to report abuse to the proper companies and, if necessary, to law enforcement.
As you have to have a valid working email address to register for either WP or any social media account, this gives me ultimate control. I hate that it’s come to this as I know not everyone uses social media, but it is what it is.
