04:25 am - Change in MY Comment Setting / Policy: NO ANON.

I've been getting e-mails of comments for some time, but of late they have ALL been spam or obvious pre-spam tests. Back when I would get the occasional real comment and very rare spam, it made sense to allow anonymous commenting for the sake friends & family who might care to comment without an account. My family hasn't commented in years now (and even when Pa was alive, he did so back on LJ) and I've not seen a non-IJ comment that wasn't spam in ages.

Even though it was pointless to spam-comment my entries (I had to approve any and all anonymous comments) except to spam *me* - and I refuse to give a spammer any money and now I give them less time. Anonymous commenting is now disabled. It's not hard to make a proper account, nor is it all that difficult to find another way to contact me if need be. I don't go out of my to advertise such, but I am not taking great pains to hide either.

As an early user of the 'net (yes, before there was a web - I used gopher, amongst other things) I find this disappointing. While the term "Endless September" might have faded from use, its reality is very sadly true.

Current Mood: [mood icon] disappointed
