Registering to comment on Slugger…

We have switched on the registration before commenting system… When we’ve done this before it’s resulted in a massive drop in the numbers of people commenting… Not surprising I suppose since when we first tried it we had less than 200 people registered… Between then and now we are up to about 800, so I hope this time the conversations will keep flowing… More than that, I hope the drop in interventions from trolls will encourage people who actually have something to come in a share their insights… So please, if you want to say something, correct something, add a bit of common sense perspective, please do jump in…

You can register on the top right hand side of the site… Just under the red banner…
