Commenting on Wordpress blogs

I can't comment on Wordpress blogs. I had a Wordpress account, lo! these many years ago, and my email address seems inexorably tied to this account. Without this password, Wordpress will not allow me to comment on any Wordpress blogs. There appears to be no easy way to either reset my long-forgotten password or delete my account.

Please don't give me advice on how to fix the problem. This is not the sort of problem that should require advice to fix.

  1. When I first noticed this feature, I stopped using Wordpress.

    Useless piece of junk.

    Thanks for saying it.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
