Site maintenance and comment privacy.

I've done a bit of tinkering with the site this weekend: I've changed how comments are published so that other visitors cannot get access to your e-mail address when they read your comment; hopefully this change will encourage commenters to use a functional e-mail address that I can use to reach you without also opening the door to spammers and other unwelcome correspondence.

I've also pruned the list of links on the front page, eliminating broken links and a bunch of fine blogs and publications that I simply don't read anymore. I've expanded the religion blog list, including quite a few members of the Progressive Christian Blogger Network whose writing I've come to value highly, but I have removed the PCBN blogroll. (You can always find it at PCBN headquarters.) And I've added very brief notations to a lot of the links.

I always appreciate your suggestions and comments about this site.

You should add this "Kensho Godchaser" guy to your blogroll. He's funny, smart, and he promises not to disappear for months at a time ever again.

I appreciate these changes. I'd also like to suggest links that target a new window. I right click your links and select "open in new window" but it would be a little faster if the links automatically did that. When I create links in forums, I add target="blank" to the link html if the forum allows it. Just a suggestion. :-)

Joyce, that's an interesting suggestion. Are you thinking primarily of links from the sidebar? Or do you prefer new windows for all links from within stories, too? That opens up a whole philosophy of links question that I'd love to hear other people's comments about.

Thanks for the comment!
