After a few inquiries and some internal debate, I have decided to turn on the ability for anonymous comments. After due consideration, the main reason I had it off to begin with isn’t really valid any longer.
Originally, comments were unmoderated, and so anonymous comments sounded like a spam magnet. However, now that moderation is turned on, any spammed comments wouldn’t show until approved anyhow. Also, Blogger has recently instituted some spam blocking that seems to be working for the most part. I guess we will now see if it is really working or not.
I reserve the right to turn it back off, however.
Perhaps a couple of you will now not be so reluctant to post comments now – hint, hint.
