Update: A Tough Decision

Comments are back on at Write for Wine! I finally found time to install Akismet to help me with spam, so hopefully the 150 spam comments received each week will be minimalized. (Three spams arrived in the brief time it took to configure Akismet, by the way!)

Now I can breathe a sigh of relief – as mentioned three weeks ago, the difficult decision to turn off comments flies in the face of everything I believe about social media as a way to engage with people and build relationships.

So thank you everyone who wrote with ideas for spam reduction – we appreciate your feedback and your support.

Cheers!
