I have been using blogspot (“Yawning Bread Sampler 1”) for some years now, to carry abstracts of Yawning Bread articles and comments.
Over the years, I have grown unhappy with the minimal functionality of blogspot, but have been too lazy to switch to WordPress (“Yawning Bread Sampler 2”)
The recent incident when some comment-makers posted allegedly defamatory comments against Nominated Member of Parliament Siew Kum Hong finally pushed me to act, and for a simple reason. Blogspot does not capture the IP addresses of comment-makers. WordPress does.
I feel it is important that I have a record of IP addresses of comment-makers in the (hopefully never again in future) event that more defamatory remarks are submitted. I also feel it is important to let readers know that from now on, IP addresses are captured (but not displayed), as a deterrent to those out to make mischief.
For nearly all comment-makers, it shouldn’t make any difference; you’ve been wonderfully lucid and sincere with your comments and I look forward to continued participation in future.
