As I think blogging is a two way street I like to make it easy for people to post comments on my blog.
Lately the number of spam comments that are getting through and being published has skyrocketed. This ruins the flow of conversations that sometimes happen on a post so I have changed my settings to only allow it easy to comment on posts less than two days old. For comments posted after this period I will have to approve them.
I will see if this works. If the spammers continue to get through I will have to turn moderation on for all comments - something I don't want to do.
