Gentle readers may have noticed that Bolsavik.com now has the option of commenting using Facebook account. That’s just the first step.
In a few days, all comments will have to use Facebook. All comments using the usual WordPress comment box will be turned off and will no longer be visible, including old comments. All commenters will have to have a Facebook account.
The Bolsavik is just going with the flow. Requiring Facebook is now a standard procedure on many sites including both the LA Times and the OC Register.
