Turning Off Registration Requirements at Geeknews

One of these days I need to discuss the history of this domain name, what i’ve been able to glean since I started carrying the torch last year. In any case, this domain name has been around a while and gets hammered by spam. This includes comment spam.

To keep a handle on it, I required a user to be registered in order to leave comments to posts, i hated having to do that but it dropped the noise to a bearable level.

Welp, i added the Spam Karma 2 plug-in recently and it appears to pick up a vast majority of the comment spam so today I’m turning off the registration requirement as a test for at least a few weeks. Sorry for the hassle earlier if you were turned off from commenting due to the reg requirement.

The following two tabs change content below.
I'm an eternal optimist, follow a Buddhist philosophy, geek of many areas, entrepreneur, learning the Chinese language, a die-hard sports fan, love politics and nuclear submarines.
