I’ve just migrated this site to Hugo, a static site generator.
I’ve decided as part of this to close the comments section, because I wasn’t getting enough worthwhile conversation there in recent years. Feedback by other communication channels is still very welcome, and if anyone sends me some that I think needs a wider audience, I can of course add it to the relevant post. If it turns out I still want a comments section under this new regime, I could perhaps embed Disqus or similar (which costs money) or Facebook comments (which presumably require commenters to have Facebook accounts). So, no perfect options, but options.
Oh, and the name of my particular site/theme is Victor, because the state of my website now makes me significantly Less Miserable.
