Anon anon

A brief admin announcement: I've finally given in and disallowed anonymous comments on this journal. The vast majority of anonymous comments I've had in the last couple of years have been spam (which I started screening so it didn't annoy my readers, but it still annoys me & I still have to delete it); a handful have been friends forgetting they weren't logged in (sorry, guys, but you'll just have to log in); but there have been so few actual genuine anonymous comments (and they tend to be drive-by advice from people I don't know) that I reckon I can live without them for the sake of not having to delete a ton of new comments from Japanese spammers and viagra sellers every time I check my mail.

PS: yes, I know that Dreamwidth has no spam at all and you get a free open-source magical kitten with every account. I do have a username there; I don't have the mental energy at the moment to start figuring out how to migrate sensibly.
