Because I love you, dear reader, and because I am SO responsive to your suggestions, and because I want to ENCOURAGE interaction (!)...
I'm changing the comment configuration again.
Last time I changed it so I didn't have to approve comments: less work for me and they post quicker.
This time, in response to Jim's comment, I'm going to turn the 'word verification' off and see how it goes. If I have to delete a few comment spam, that's not so bad. I get an email with every comment ( as Jaq recommended), so that shouldn't be hard to monitor. If the spam gets bad, I'll have to tweak again.
I am still very aware that Kathy doesn't like Blogger comments. It's not that I don't want to respond to you, Kathy, just that I don't see a really good solution without going back to YACCS, which I don't really want to do. Anybody else have this problem? If so, why?
