Tried to Comment on Texas Lawyer Blog

I tried to leave a comment on Texas Lawyer magazine’s Tex Parte Blog. I got this in my email from the Managing Editor of Texas Lawyer:

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on Texas Lawyer‘s blog. To publish it, I need your written permission, full name and city, all of which will be published with the comment.

Four days later, I got the same message from the Law Editor of Texas Lawyer. I forwarded my mocking response to the first email to her.

Doesn’t leaving a comment on a blog imply permission to publish? If Texas Lawyer doesn’t think so (seriously?), wouldn’t a checkbox on the comment form make more sense?

I thought I was doing a lot to discourage comments by requiring people to use their actual names, but Tex Parte’s bizarre policy has me beaten by a country mile.
