I'l admit… sometimes I enjoy messing with all the trolls that swing by. But, quite frankly, they're annoying the hell out of me. So we're making a switch to cut down on the spammers.
We're going to require readers to sign in to comment. It might add an annoying step at first for a bunch of you… and we're sorry for that. We hope that doesn't discourage you from commenting. What we hope for is the elimination of the random, drive-by jackasses.
We want this to be a place for Celtics, and NBA fans to enjoy themselves. I'm perfectly happy with fans of other teams coming by to debate or even talk a little trash. But I want those fans to stand up for themselves and own it… not be cowards who hide under fake emails and make vulgar comments that add nothing.
So I'm sorry for those of you who have to take an extra couple of steps. There should be a "remember me" option so we hope you don't have to sign in every time. Also, Google Chrome and Firefox have "remember my password" options… so you can hopefully save yourself the step that way.
As always, we thank you for reading… and we apologize if the trolls have detracted from that experience. We hope this fixes the problem.
