I've had to change a setting on this blog. While I try to make it as open and easy to comment, I've had to disable access to Anonymous users. I was getting upwards of 50 or more comments a day for everything from free Viagra to Coach purse ads. It fills up my BlackBerry, which is annoying, especially since I've missed work emails due to the long list of Anonymous commenters.
So to Nancy and Marlyce and anyone else who comments under Anonymous, just set up an account - it's easy and free, and they don't require a lot of info.
At least I haven't had to add comment verification yet - let's see how this works.
