In trying to reply to comments I keep coming up against the 'firstname.lastname@example.org' address which means I can't reply personally to the sender. When I first set up this blog I was wary of inviting unwelcome intrusions into my life (My Space, Facebook etc. were unheard of at the time) and set my comments address to no-reply.
Recently I've changed this to a web-based address, so that if things did get sticky could be deleted, and what a difference it has made - dialogues have begun with blog visitors, none unwelcome, that I couldn't have dreamt of a while ago.
I'm thinking of starting a campaign!!!!!!!!
