To all zero of my readers,
Ages ago, I disabled comments on my journal because I posted approximately never and the few comments I did get were always spam so it was just some extra noise for me to deal with. You could always comment if you logged in using openid… maybe a good filter once upon a time, but it feels like that never really caught on and fizzled out over the years (maybe there will be a resurgence now that ActivityPub is catching on).
Since I am posting regularly again (albeit as mindless sharing of links I find interesting), I figured I’d give opening comments in general another shot. You still have to provide your name and email address, and the first comment is always moderated as a trivial spam filter. After I’ve approved your email address, you can post away all you’d like. I am a bit wary of enabling proprietary SaaS like akismet, so that’s not enabled yet… hopefully deleting spam from the moderation queue doesn’t become a huge pain.
I guess that’s that.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
I doubt that spam will reach that level. The occasional porn bot, for sure, but unlikely to have any other issues imo.
Thanks for adding back commenting!!
