General Administrativeness

I regret that I had to do this, but this morning I changed the settings on my journal so that only registered users were able to post comments.

I'm sorry guys, but I've suddenly been the recipient of spam comments, and I don't want to deal with them. I did not have many people posting anonymously before (at least, deliberately), and if you were one of them, I do sincerely apologize.

This is fine, it will keep me from mistakenly posting while not logged in.

Hee. You're one of the few that posts anonymously, I almost always know it's you. ;)

I am annoyed at the necessity; I wanted to leave the option open so people could always feel free to make remarks without fear of repercussions, but... enh, c'est la vie.

Ah, I've had mine that way for years myself, after some huge drama on a message board I used to go to that spilled over into LJ. I had some people flaming me anonymously, so I was like "wait I can put an end to this pretty easily."

Sorry you were getting spammed though, that's annoying. D:

Same; after I broke up with my abusive ex, I had people trolling my journal to tell me I was insane, among other things. I switched it to no-anon and it's stayed that way since.

There's been a flood of Spam posting on LJ lately. The community account for one of the conventions I'm on staff for was hit really hard. About twelve porn-linked messages on the last several entries.

With all that spam you're now set to survive 2012 ;)

Perfectly understandable.
I've had to do this myself a couple of weeks ago...
