I’ll cut to the chase. We may switch to a new commenting system that could potentially wipe out all existing comments on Techland, including the ones from Nerd World days. The new commenting system is called Echo and other sites and blogs within the Time network are already on board. Rather than making the switch, I’m asking all of you, the ones that actually comment, whether or not you’d be irked if we made the switch.
I understand the barrier to entry is obnoxious. Who wants a WordPress account just to comment on Techland? Preposterous, I know. But such is life. A move to Echo would allow you to comment without an account or you can do so with Facebook Connect. It’s really up to ya’ll whether you want this change to happen.
So, what do you say?
