For the love of Pete! Or just type at the beginning of each post that you don't want comments so I don't type in a reply and then have to do word verification, because I'm not going to do it.

Thanks :D

I changed my comments over to disqus so I wouldn't have to use word verification - it lets you leave a comment with an already existing social media account and half of the sites I read use it already.

Thanks for that tip, Katie! For some reason I decided to use tumblr for my mofo blog because it's so easy to set up, but it's not really the best for blogging. I didn't know! I've been out of the game for too long, I guess. Anyway, I think if I use disqus I can allow comments more easily.

Yeah, i've seen people use disqus on tumblr and it helps for cranky people like me who refuse to sign up for tumblr.

I got over 300 spam comments on some entries during MoFo last year and not surprisingly, I got tired of trying to delete them all.

It's also way easier to read lots of blogs when you don't have to click through out of your reader. I don't like doing that anyway but I do for blogs I know and love but probably won't when I'm trying to read a lot.

I downloaded akismet recently, and it filters out the hundreds of spam I get every day.

I don't think I have word verification... but I'm not sure. I know I have comment moderation turned on. But I can't even figure out how to turn that off now! Using Wordpress.

Go to the Dashboard. On the left under Settings is Discussion. There are a bunch of comment settings there. (I'm self hosted on Wordperss. I'm assuming actual wordpress blogs have the same dashboard.) Though I don't think moderation is as off-putting for people as captcha.

That did nothing for me - and it was really obvious spam buzzwords like blooie wuton purses (i'm trying to not attract spam bots) and eyepawds and shiitake. I don't know why it was letting it through, but I gave up.

OK! I think I have it figured out. Yeah, I don't mind putting in email/name but I hate having to do w.v.

I'm sooooo over captcha. Definitely stops me from commenting a lot of the time!

My wordpress account automatically chucks every single comment with a blog link into spam. Frustrating.

that's kind of annoying. so far blogger has appropriately filtered 98% of my spam.

Hey, can I ask you guys to see if you can comment on my blog. Not because I haven't had any comments yet, but someone told me they couldn't comment. I used disqus for the comments and I can see where to comment so I'm not sure what's up.

Can I add another gripe to this thread? I've encountered several blogs that I want to comment on, but they only allow comments through OpenID or Tumblr or AIM or wordpress or some other thing that I don't have. Can people please add a way to comment with just name and email, or are there some platforms that don't allow that?

I can't comment on tumblr because I don't sign up for discus. I also never sign up to things using Facebookery or other things, which was given to me as an option on your tumblr. So I wouldn't comment but I think most people would be able to given the options.
