Did ya notice in the comments?

People who have a WordPress.com account get neat little pictures next to their comments here on my blog (thank you Matt Mullenweg!). One advantage? You’re far less likely to end up in the spam bucket (comments with pictures are easy to pick out of the spam stream). It’s a small thing, but it sure made me smile when it turned on. I’m so easily pleased. Now hopefully Matt and team will add on some more features for commenting. I’d hate for Disqus or SezWho users to have all the fun.

  3. great idea, Robert! It’s a big thing!

    Generally wordpress.com is a great service although I wish they could allow ads also for commoners and not only alpha bloggers and that they could offer something like “blogging service for ever” (like: you pay 1000 USD and they host your account even after you pass away)…
