Image by Frank Hamm via FlickrI've decided to try out a new commenting system on Southeast to Southwest. The new system uses Intense Debate to help with commenting and also to cut down on comment spam.
Blogger's comment system has lagged far behind for a long time including making it difficult for people to leave a comment if they don't have an Open ID or Blogger account. I've never been a fan of the "anonymous" comment because it invites abuse by cowards who have nothing to say of value and Blogger doesn't have a quick way for people to leave a comment without going through a big signup process.
The new system won't show on the older posts but starting with this one you can check it out for yourself. Take a look and leave me a comment letting me know what you think about it!
