Comments are on. A one-time minute of annoyance now required.

The spam is not going to slow back down, so here's the deal:

Comments are on! However, you need to register with Popping Culture one time and one time only, then simply provide your posting name and password (which your computer's cookies will put up for you anyway) when you comment.

When you comment for the first time, you will be directed to a website for TypeKey, which will get your name and an email address. That's all.

I'm excited. Somebody try it!

This post will remain at the top for a while.

See, even I had to register, and it's my site! Took me less than a minute. Comment away, my friends!

I already had a TypeKey account. (Can't remember exactly why.)

Sweet. This morning I woke up to only three new comments, one of which I left myself.

This is better than the usual 200 comments, from which I must glean the three or four real ones.

Hurray. Now I'm a real boy -- eat your little wooden heart out, Pinocchio.

Pete, it's one thing to think you're a pretty good guy, but to be approved by a machine takes you to an all new level.

I visit your website daily and enjoy it. I rarely post, but I thought what the hay.

Thank you very much for saying so, MDog.

So...
Did you guys keep the little kitten? And what flavor was it?

Posted by: Killer Kitten [TypeKey Profile Page] at August 4, 2005 07:25 AM

We're still in negotiations on the cat. It has to wait another month for a leukemia shot, and since our current cat, Polly, has leukemia, we can't get them together in the house. It's a boy.

No more spam? Sweet. Even from just the few entries I posted back when you were on vacation, I would get spam comments every couple days. Damn spammers.

Joel, for what it's worth, you still have keys. Post something pop culturey whenever you like, just let folks know it's you.

Just perusing since 5 AM this morning (couldn't sleep) and stumbled upon your site. I've spent hours pouring over the various postings. I laughed and cried. You're a gifted writer Dan.
I've no experience with this whole "world of blog" but have saved your site to my Favorites so I'll be watching ;) ~ Cindy
