As I mentioned in yesterday's meeting, I did email them about commenting on the official WIA blog.
This is the response I got:
The reason we don't have the comments section open right now is because we've had a problem with spam in the past. We are going to figure out a way that people can be more involved with the blog itself, but for now we're leaving the comments closed. But I promise, either comments or some kind of discussion board will be up soon.
