I am turning the comment moderation back on. I was going to leave it off, because it's nicer to have the comments just appear than to have to wait for me to approve them, but then I remembered that I have been meaning to turn the "CAPTCHA" feature off in my comments, and the moderation will still give me a bit of a spam-screen.
The reason I'm turning off CAPTCHA (the crazy letters you have to type into the box to prove you aren't a computer) is because ages ago, Lisa mentioned that those little things were virtually impossible to deal with if you are disabled and using various gadgets to read and comment on websites. (I am too lazy to find the exact post or the exact explanation, but it was in there somewhere.)
Anyway, in spite of the fact that sometimes those things have little wheelchair icons that supposedly make them disability-friendly, Lisa says they usually just aren't so I'm going to see how it goes to moderate the comments for a while and watch for spam in person.
Far be it from me to keep the lovely and brilliant Lisa or any other disabled lurker from conversating on my blog!
