Adding Facebook comments

Comments are difficult to deal with. I had to turn off comments on
the old MaraDNS blog
of spammers and because of anonymous requests for MaraDNS support.

with Linux went viral,
it would have been better to allow people who didn't like what I had to
say about Linux have their say, perhaps only censoring obvious trolls and
This in mind, I have trying out Facebook for handling my comments. Some
advantages of Facebook commenting:
- Most identities are not anonymous. This minimizes issues with people
using an anonymous identity to post offensive
stuff they would not say if their name was on it.
- Killfiles. Facebook, unlike the majority of
web discussion systems, allows you to killfile someone: Go to their
profile, click on the gear icon, select report/block, and block the user.
Comments? I will make this my first blog entry with Facebook comments!
