How to make comments
We cover a wide range of issues in this newsletter, ranging from whether brain-damaged Frenchman Vincent Lambert should be allowed to die to whether IVF affects human evolution.
But today I’ll address a nuts-and-bolts issue– how to make comments. We’d like to encourage debate and fresh ideas in the comment box below each article. However we realise that it is a bit clumsy and hard to use.
There are no perfect commenting systems. We use third-party software called Disqus. It works well and allows us to moderate comments. But the best way to make a Disqus comment is to sign up for Disqus. It’s easy and quick.
Unfortunately – and understandably – many of our readers are reluctant to sign up for one more social media system. The solution is to post as a “guest”. But Disqus makes this a bit difficult.
So here’s how to do it. Type your name (or pseudonym) into the “name” box. Then two more boxes appear. Type in your email AND tick the box “I’d rather post as a guest”.
Voilà! You’re all set. Write your comment (be sensible and polite) and click the arrow button.
We know it’s tough. Just give it a go!
