For a long time I've had a policy of allowing Anonymous comments. This led to loads of Spam so I switched on comment moderation - still loads of Spam ... so I put on a word verification thing... Spam stopped.
However I know that sometimes the word verification is stopping people commenting and I find it a real pain at times when reading/commenting on blogs on a mobile phone.
So today I switched off the word verification thing... in less than an hour 5 Spam comments!!!
I give up the Spammers I'm afraid have beaten me. So I've switched off Anonymous comments. Sorry folks I don't want to do that really but what else can I do? I want people to comment etc. so please do - you can always email me your comment asking me to post it for you - I will respect your anonymity but clearly you'll compromise it emailing me I know but I promise to simply post a comment under my name for you anonymously but you can only take me on trust on that one.
