Quite a few new commenters have joined the conversation here recently. Welcome!
If you leave a comment, it has to be approved by someone on the editorial team here at the Bilerico Project. But if you register to comment, they'll appear automatically.
Instead of just leaving a comment, click "Sign in or create an account to comment," just above the "Name" field. Follow the steps to register, and then leave a comment. We'll approve your account after your first comment so that you don't need to be approved anymore after that.
This helps reduce the spam we get here at the Bilerico Project, which, without our filters in place, would be an awful problem (we receive several hundred spam comments a day).
Thanks for registering, and a brief explanation of basic HTML allowed in comments is after the jump.
Also, if you've had trouble registering, please leave a comment and we'll get that sorted out.
Here are some cool things you can do in the comments here to make what you say look snazzy.
Hyperlink: A hyperlink is that thing where the text you're reading turns green and is underlined for a few words and you can click on it to go to another webpage.
The way you'd type something like that into a post is like this:
<a href="http://www.example.com">Like this</a>
Make sure to use the "http://"! This also helps to keep long URL's in the content column instead of drifting off to the side of the browser.
Blockquote: Do you like quoting others? This helps to delineate what you say and what someone else is saying, like this dude says:
Kneeling comes naturally for a priest. Mm-hmm. Doesn't Mark Jordan estimate that 2/3 of priests have G-cards? Well, then. I'm going to say that this is more likely than not a blow job joke.
Just put in blockquote tags - <blockquote>Quoted text</blockquote> - and you get some indentation action.
Stylized text: Do some fun stuff with text. DON'T FORGET THAT ALL CAPS MEANS SHOUTING AND IS BAD NETIQUETTE. Italics and bold are good substitutes.
