Anonymous Comments OFF for Now
I got tired of having to delete about 100 bogus comments from anonymous users every day. Anonymous comments were moderated so none of the spammy ones would get posted so it was a total waste of time to post them in the first place... but bots don't seem to learn.
In any event, I hate having to sign up for an account just to leave a comment on a site... so an alternative is to just email me your anonymous comments along with the URL that they refer to - firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll give it a week and see how it turns out. I am NOT a fan of captcha so I don't want to burden all users with that either.
Site registrations have been turned back ON but registration requirements will be enforced.
