If there is one thing that really discourages me from making a comment on someone else’s blog, it is when I’m asked to register. I really hate that. For some reason, that really bugs me. I realized joining a website serves two purposes: First, it’s one way of fighting comment spam. Second, it’s a great way to get people to join a website, a method employed by myspace and others.
Shouldn’t comments be spontaneous? Shouldn’t it be easy? I must admit there were times I was pregnant with thought only to be discouraged when asked to register. It just plain kills the mood. Take note ESPN. I just read a nice article by Jen Chang about USA Soccer and was just about to comment only to be stopped dead on the track by an online form.
Am I the only one who feel this way?
