Anonymous Comments

Have you been getting more Spam on your blog lately? I sure have.


Since I don't want any more unsolicited, and sometimes unseemly, advice on Viagra, Calendula oil, electronic cigarettes, iPhones, sandal fashions or horoscopes, I've (sadly) had to block Anonymous Comments from this blog.

I know some of my friends and family members do post as Anonymous and I really enjoy your Comments so so here is a suggestion...open a Google account.



It's easy and will allow you to post comments on your favorite blogs without having them deleted as Spam. Just click on "Sign In" at the top right of the Google homepage, click "Create An Account", choose a password, and you'll be all set.

To my fellow bloggers: Have you been getting more and more Spam on your blog? How do you deal with it?  I'm sure that some of you will have suggestions that will not only help me but fellow bloggers who would rather discuss home decorating than erectile dysfunction (aren't there already way too many ads about that on TV as it is?)

Happy Sunday,

I haven't had a problem with 'unwanted' comments but I think I disabled them at some point. I do get those 'ed' emails in my junk email often though. I mean really. Are they necessary?? Pam

I've tried allowing anonymous comments. They hit me with those ads quick!

I don't allow anonymous comments either! It's easy to get a Google acct if you want to comment! Hugs, Linda

I have had my share of those comments and blocked anonymous comments also. I've had a lot of blog friends just send emails rather than make Google accounts and that works too.

You should read the comments that have been popping up on my "Got Milk?" post. Yikes!

Same as you....I can allow anonyous. I have tried several times...it never works.
People can easily get an account without having a blog...
Hope you have a great week. I am feeling pretty well right now. Thank you for always checking on me!

Amen to that!

Yes, I've gotten a couple, but I've never allowed anonymous comments, so I didn't have anyone commenting that way. Just a couple of people that want me to buy something... guess I'll just keep ignoring them...
