Registration No Longer Required To Comment on


I’ve opened up the comment function so that you no longer have to register & log in to comment.  Let’s see how it goes.  I have a feeling I may need to ratchet down the spam filters a bit tighter.


  • It’s entirely possible that you were the person who told me about Spam Karma, but just in case, I figured I’d mention it. I use it on every WP site I deploy and have found it to be very efficient.

  • Akismet anti-spam is doing okay so far – I was expecting to get hammered with spam, but the volume is no more than usual. Plus, I still have the button set to approve the first comment from a given poster as well – so that should help, too. But I will look into Spam Karma if Akismet starts to wimp out on me.

  • Hello all!!

    I thought this might be a great way to introduce myself to your community and hopefully connect with you! I am actively searching for several CCIE candidates who might be open to a new opportunity. These would be full-time positions. The locations could either be Chicago,IL, NY or MA. If you might know of anyone-Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Thank you in advance!!
