A comment on commenting

I hate to do this, but I’ve been getting a lot of blog spam, so I’ve changed my blog to only allow comments from users authenticated by Six Apart’s TypeKey system. I apologize for the hassle factor for those who wish to comment. Please keep in mind that this doesn’t prevent you from posting without anyone really knowing who you are, in the sense that its pretty easy to set up a TypeKey account that points to a free email account.

  1. This is a test comment to make sure authentication actually works.

  2. Actually, this is a good idea. On my own blog, I started getting slammed with about 3000 comments a day in late November. Takes too long to clean that mess up, too.
