Anonymous Commenters


I’ve changed my settings to disallow comments from anonymous commenters. If you want to comment, you’ll have to have at least a pseudonym.

  1. How did you set that up? I’m tempted to do it, myself.

    I’ve been experiencing problems with the multiple personality posters, who write in multiple comments, agreeing with themselves.

    You can set up most blogger software to do that. I believe you use blogger so let me address that.

    Go to your “dashboard”

    select settings

    click on comments (the fourth selection from the left)

    go to “Who Can Comment?” and select the level of anonymity you want.

    I like wordpress for just this reason. Akismet catches about 99% of comment spam and lets me see the IP address (if I chose the right plugin) of the poster.

    Good luck.

    That’s just disturbing. Here in the blogosphere, the technical term for that is “sock puppets.”
