"Logging In" to Add Comments

"Why do I have to login to add a comment?"

When you finish your comment and click "Post Comment…", a pop up window appears asking you to login in one of two ways:

  1. By typing your name and email address in the default field (video). Or
  2. By logging in to one of the social account icons listed (video).

Neither method actually logs you in to this website. What they do is:

  • Verify that you're a human and not a spambot.
  • Allow you to meet the Comment Policy requirements of adding your name and email address to each comment.
  • Add a cookie to your browser so you won't have to 'login' again the next time you comment.

If you're still having problems posting a comment after watching the videos below, please ensure your browser and its settings are supported by this website.
