I guess it's personal preference. As I've read, it's preferred to not
use in-line replies because it makes it a little harder to follow the
thread. For me though, I prefer it as it lets me address each point
individually, though I sometimes feel like I am annoying someone. :)

It's a very good point, and one I will keep in mind as the format of the

I don't like having people feel obliged to register, so I installed
reCAPTCHA in the hopes of deterring our little vandal. It didn't seem to
slow him down though, so I just disabled it.
I very much want this to be a project that people think "Hey, I've got
five minutes, I'll add X" and not worry about being hassled. I guess
figuring out how to best do that will come with experience. :)
Again, thank you very much!
