I noticed a serious drought in commenting lately.
About a month ago the site was getting hammered with spam so I started fiddling with the commenting settings in an effort to blacklist / stop the spam-bot that was attacking the site. I thought I had returned the settings back to normal after the attack stopped but I had left the ‘logged in to comment’ box still checked.
It should be all fixed now. Feel free to start commenting again. Good, bad or grammatically.
You’ll still need to put in a username and something in the email address box. I don’t use this information for anything other than pre-authorizing past commenters.
