So, this will be the first comment in this new comment system. Hello world!
Anyhow, Libravatars and Gravatars leak too much information. Passing around a hash of your email address isn’t a good idea. That’s why I’m not using them in this comment system. Instead, you’ll get a unique avatar generated from a salted version of your email address.
You get a unique avatar that people can use to recognize you in the comment system, but one that can’t be used to track you across the web.
