In the interest of encouraging more comments, because — hey, who of us doesn’t want confirmation that someone reads these things — I have reenabled anonymous comments.
In exchange, I’m turning on comment moderation. I’m going to try it only for old posts, but if I get spam on the new stuff, I’ll turn it on for all posts.
What I’d LIKE to have is the option for comment moderation or captcha ONLY for anonymous comments. I don’t understand why this feature doesn’t exist. I shall grumble at Google about it.
So, in the short term, those of you already commenting shouldn’t notice any difference. We’ll see how it goes.
