After an experiment in which we opened comments to allow anyone to comment on Tracker posts, we have decided to require registration once again.
We found ourselves deluged with spam, despite the use of CAPTCHA schemes, and we didn't see a corresponding increase in legit comments. In fact, we were in danger of missing legit comments in our sweeps to clear out the spam.
Sorry about the inconvenience; we are working on a new way to do this, and we will open comments again as soon as we can.
In the meantime, if you are not registered, please register! And sign up for our daily alert regarding new posts!
We don't give away premiums for joining the way NPR or your local station does, but the cost of becoming a member of our station is zero. Can you find a better deal?
