Pet peeve: don’t make me work to give you a comment

I read a lot of blogs. And I mean a lot of blogs. I don’t comment as much as I probably should. Why? Because you make it nearly impossible for me to leave you a comment.

Things that will ensure I don’t leave you a comment:

  • your captcha system makes it impossible to enter the words correctly the first five times I try
  • I have to have an account with your blogging system and there are no other options available
  • it takes 15 minutes to qualify through the commenting system before I can see that my comment made it into your queue
  • you hide the “leave a comment” option

There are probably other things I’m not thinking about right now, but those will decrease your comments, I guarantee it.
