Comment registration open! Update: Closed

It’s been about three months since the last open registration day, so we’re opening the books once again. First read our Terms of Service, and if you agree, register through this link and follow the steps. Be patient; we have to approve the first comment of each new registrant, so please don’t keep resubmitting when it doesn’t appear immediately. We will eventually get them all.

It goes without saying that people who try trolling on their first comment will get banned right out of the gate, as well as previously banned commenters. This is not an amnesty; it’s an opportunity to expand the community. Dissent isn’t trolling — in fact, we love a good debate — and we know trolling when we see it.

Welcome to Hot Air!

Update: Thanks for a great day, and welcome to all the new folks here at Hot Air.  Registration is now closed.
