Trackbacks and Comments

Several people have written to ask why I don’t allow comments ortrackbacks. The answer is not censorship, but rather it’s due tothe fact that I desired a totally static “blog”, so the use ofexternal comments and trackback servers is necessitated.Unfortunately the Radio Userland default ones areunbelievably slow, adding significantly to thetime taken to load and render the page. I’m considering options,and if anyone has any suggestions please email me (the link is onthe sidebar). Alternately, given that it’s an open API, I mightjust write my own. Sounds like fun.
