No more anonymity on my Blogger site.
On my initial use of Blogger, captchas were used to keep the internet robots from posting comments on my site. I removed the captcha requirement and several months later I started to get an infrequent spam comment. However, over the past couple of months, there have been on average about three to four spam comments per day generated by internet robots. That far outnumbers the real comments that are posted.
Something had to be done. The blogger settings were changed. No more anonymity. Going forward, either an OpenID or Google registration will be required to post a comment at the Wandrin Lloyd blog.
If the internet robot programmers figure out how to post comments with a Google registration, captchas will be turned on for comments. Another possibility is to turn off comments entirely. It's an option.
Eliminate comment anonymity. Simplify. Make life easy.
