I wish there were some way of navigating your stupid Nittany Turkey website. I can never enter anything in it. Can’t you let me in now that ‘Dusker can’t subscribe? What Beano Cook was to Kiski Prep, you are to Altoona and journalism. A near curmudgeon, you.
I shall respond.
As to the issue of not being able to register, I’ve fixed that. I didn’t know that I had turned off the registration link, but that is indeed what happened. It can be found under the header “META” at the bottom of the column on the far right (not politically). If you want to avoid having to enter the same, damn, redundant information each time you want to leave a comment, register and save yourself some time.
Regarding the characterization as a “near curmudgeon”, hell, I’ve been way over the line into full curmudgeonhood for at least the past 20 years!
P.S. to BigAl:
I put a “captcha” thing on the registration form because I was getting some spam registrations. I want to give you a heads-up just in case you go there, because you’ve told me those things piss you off. I have no plans of requiring that crap for comments.
Register? You can register for this site! Well shut my mouth. Don’t ever remember doing that, but low and behold my name & e-mail seems to auto-populate. You’re not running some NSA covert op are you?
The Nittany Turkey says
Yeah, you can register, but you don’t have to. You can keep on doing what you’re doing. I was responding to a user complaint from a PSU classmate from back in the day.
The auto-fill you are experiencing is one way to avoid the pain in the ass of registering, but some people disable that feature of the web browser of their choice in order to enhance security.
Unlike Lane Kiffin, the choice is yours.
