Thank you to all of our readers and legitimate commenters. Due to an increase in disruptive behavior in the comments section, including spoofing, authentication will now be mandatory to post comments on GCC. As an initial step, you’ll soon need to have a TypeKey identity to post a comment on this site.
TypeKey is a completely pseudonymous system—no personally identifying information is required to use it, although you can put whatever information you choose to share on your TypeKey profile page. The registration page is here.
TypeKey is a free and open system run by Six Apart, the publishers of Movable Type and the providers of the TypePad service. When it is up and running and tested, we'll let you know.
According to Six Apart,
We’re committed to providing a service that respects user privacy. Therefore, we will not publish information that you have not chosen to make public, nor will we share your information without your explicit permission.
