No, this is not Tinkering, OK maybe it really is but when the Who can Comment? setting was reset to Anyone this week, those REALLY annoying Anonymous comments started again. Seems that spammers have nothing to do but send out those ridiculous Anonymous comments — all get deleted by us before even being published. Did I mention how they are REALLY REALLY annoying as most fellow bloggers already know.
Who can comment?
- Anyone - includes Anonymous Users
- Registered User - includes OpenID
- User with Google Accounts
- Only members of this blog
An earlier change to User with Google Accounts unfortunately excluded some great blogger friends like Christer (The Cottage by the Crane Lake Part Two) who don’t use Gmail from posting a comment. Those folks can still read the posts, just not comment.
Grenville and I really really enjoy reading everyone’s comments BUT the Anonymous ones while being bothersome, take time to delete and we would MUCH rather be doing other things when online like posting or reading your posts.
To all fellow bloggers who left comments on the previous post about this issue; most preferred Registered User.
Who can Comment? has been changed to that — so Take that Anonymous
