System is still a little glitchy, so I want to reiterate a few things.
First, there is no commenting under a pseudonym without permission. Any posts under a pseudonym will be removed or not approved.
Second, if you have trouble logging on – contact me and we will fix it.
Apologies for the technical glitches, but we no longer allow anonymous posts (even if you can technically still access your account).
Again the options:
Option 1: This is the main option and the only open registration as of 4 pm. Log in through Facebook. To clarify, you must post under your actual name here. Any obviously fake Facebook accounts will result in deleted registrations. It is important to note that you are not having your personal Facebook information posted to the Vanguard and you don’t need to have your Vanguard posts post to Facebook.
Option 2: For those who want to post through the Vanguard system under their real name – either with an existing account or a new one – send an email and so long as I can verify your identity, I’m happy to give you access that way.
Option 3: You can petition for use of an anonymous posting. You need to provide me in writing (email is fine): Name, a valid email address, a valid phone number and a reason for remaining anonymous. We will not share this information with anyone. No promises on the approval, but I’m more likely to approve people posting under a first name or first name/ last initial than a moniker. Also your posts will be more highly scrutinized especially on personal attacks.
