Posthaven now supports commenting and upvotes

We've been working hard getting new features to you as soon as we can. Here's the latest — we've added the ability for your visitors to leave comments. You'll get email notifications when they do comment, and you can turn these off by editing your email settings (either click the link in the email, or go to Dashboard > Your Account

Notifications
We'll be adding daily digests for comments as soon as we can. For now, you'll be able to either get your comment notifications immediately, or you can turn them off. 

Built-in anti-spam
Anyone can leave a comment by default, but we do run anti-spam software so that you don't get lots of annoying spam comments. The worst your real visitors will see when trying to comment will be a captcha, powered by Recaptcha, but we only do that if we think the comment looks like spam. 

What's next for commenting?
In addition to daily / weekly comment digests, over the coming days we'll be adding Facebook / Twitter login, the ability to close comments automatically if the posts are old, e.g. 90 days (which will be configurable), and comment-by-email (once post by email is ready).

Easily disable commenting
Don't want commenting? No worries. You can turn it off by going to your Site Settings and just set it to disabled:

Upvotes
We also introduced a new concept: Upvotes. This was the same as "favorites" from Posterous, and if you have imported faves, they'll automatically show up as upvotes now. We were inspired by Reddit, and upvotes are always nice gestures that show people that as readers, you care. No login is required to do an upvote, so it's a great way to give people some love for their posts. Try it on this one. =)

Thanks again for your support. We'll keep shipping these features as soon as we can.

Nice to have comments back - I don't get many, but the few I do get have always been nice!

Nice one - great to see the feature releases keep on coming! Re comment (anti) spam, I'm a big fan of Defensio. Would be nice to see support for that down the track. You know, when you've cleared out your to-do list :-)

Any timing on posts by email - that is send an email when a new post is available to a mailing list?

Thanks a lot for the update. But uhm, I'm wondering whether or not it'll be possible to comment/post anonymously with the future update. See, I'll be running two blogs from this account. One public and one anonymous. As it is now, this is possible. However, if it will become like the old posterous, it will only be possible by having two separate accounts. ("posted by "beruset"", for example) Same with the comments.
Can't wait to see the new features!!
