Hallelujah! You no longer have to email me to be able to comment here. Here is what you do:
Get to the log in screen, via Comments. If you don’t already have a password and user name, select Register, and you will be asked to supply the user name you want and your email address. The password for the user name will be sent to the email address that you supplied, and you will be ready to comment. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems (with the site, that is. Although you could email me with other problems, I guess.)
I do moderate the first comment, so don’t fret if it takes a while for your first comment to show up. There should not be a lag to your comments after your first one has been approved.
