The level of spam comments on my LJ account has gotten ridiculous. I've "screened," anonymous comments for a while. That meant you folks didn't see them. I still get a notification every time someone poops out a mash of cyrillic porn links all over one of my sensitive and erudite essays. It turns out that this offends my liberal sensibilities.

Therefore, I've disabled comments from the anonymous. I intend to wield the ban-hammer liberally on registered-user spam.

If you want to comment, but don't have an LJ account, I encourage you to do so at the main blog site anyway. LJ is just a mirror of that - mostly.

Also, does anyone even read this thing anymore?

Side note: someone needs to come up with a nice technical fix so that if you post something in > 1 place, you can still have all the comments show up in one place (at least to the author, maybe to everyone). Comment fragmentation sucks.

It's possible to mirror back and forth between LJ and wordpress - but I choose not to.

I usually have my trained Soviet monkeys read your blog for me. I've asked them not to comment, but I don't think they understand.

I still read LJ, and I would be seriously disappointed if you stopped cross-posting here. Unless you get a Google+ account of course. :-P

Yep.

I read here. Lurker that I am. My interest level in posting to my own page has (empirically) been at zero for more than a year though.

I still read LJ. In many ways I still like this place best.

I still read regularly, but seldom comment, or post myself. Your posts always seem worthy of thoughtful comments, something I've not been capable of recently.

as you know, I recently disabled anonymous comments too. Livejournal is a dying community anyway, so I don't feel too bad about making it a little harder to access.

I still read your sensitive and erudite essays, naturally, since this is where I know to look for them. I'm not so keen to post here these days for reasons you know well (and maybe I should do more about that soon), but I still comment on entries occasionally.
