Today I've had enough. I got 138 Anonymous spam comments to my blog. They show up to my computer in the form of emails and its getting very annoying. Though some are pretty funny (people pretend they really like your "content" or "very informative post" so I know its a bunch of bull right away), I can't take it anymore. I'm not ready to turn word verification on because I know it's annoying.
I still get excited that an email might be news from home (and it NEVER is, jerks). So I turned Anonymous commenting off for now, to see if it will help.
All you have to do when commenting is choose Open ID, and then type your name. Or Poop Butt. It doesn't matter, it's an "Open" ID.
I hope this solves the problem. If not, it's back to word verification.
