Comments go users-only

Okay, I've had it with the spam. I've made comments users-only but removed the captcha which didn't seem to be helping anyway.

I'm bummed because some of my regular commenters don't have LJ accounts, but the spam was pulling me out of my productivity zone too often to ignore :(

ETA: from idamus: If those anon friends want an LJ for commenting, they can lock the accounts down to 100% private, then only their chosen user name shows, anything else can be hidden from other users/search engines in the settings

That's actually how I started here, juuust gonna comment on my favourite fics, suddenly I had online friends and was blogging (very randomly, but blogging none the less) go figure :)

Thanks, I've cut/pasted your advice into the main body of the post. The spam was so out of control :(

I'd hate to lose my private commenters.

You usually put a link on twitter or fb though, so people could leave comments there if they don't want to sign up to LJ.

Oh, that's true. I hadn't thought about it that way.

I've taken out and dusted off my very old and under-used LJ account.

Spam is such a pain in the arse, isn't it? I don't blame you for cracking down. What a time-suck, having to look through it all.
