We have taken a step into the wild west of allowing “unmoderated” comments on all of our postings. I will monitor the situation to see how it works and proceed from there.
The reason I asked people fill out a name and email address was to block the endless streams of spam that attempt to appear as comments. Apparently with my new settings I do not have to have names and email addresses in order to block the spammers. We shall see how this plays out.
