Well, between the required login and “previously approved post”, the spam queue has dropped down to zero, which is quite a relief.

However, I still want to bring back open commenting if at all possible. Dale will be looking into that Spam Karma plugin for WordPress.

If he thinks it looks solid as far as code, we’ll give it a try and see how well it works. I don’t know when that will be, as Dale is pretty busy right now.

Naturally, if we install the plugin, I’ll post that Open Comments are back. Keep your fingers crossed.
