I’ve just tried to turn on registration, to deal with spam. It is probably doomed. Please try to leave a comment on this post letting me know how it worked. If it just totally f*cks up, then email me (wmconnolley (at) gmail.com). If just-post fails, try previewing first.
OK, it is totally f*ck*d. Thanks for your emails. I’ll turn it all off now. My apologies.
I seem to have left approve-all-comments turned on. I’m going to leave that, for at least a bit.
Note that according to the settings, any “authenticated” commenter doesn’t need approving.
[Most amusing failure email: "For some reason it thinks I am from Finland... and I dont understand Finnish". For those who said: I couldn't see any way to register: yes, I noticed that, I assumed it would work, somehow, for you lot.]
