Disabled anon comments Sep 14, 2009
So what I had feared had transpired, as I had just realized every post on this site was littered w/ spam comments from anonymous sources. Supposedly there is a drupal module which will filter the spam for you, but honestly I haven’t much need for anonymous comments right now anyways, so I disabled it all together. If you notice anything wrong w/ any of my postings, just email me, and if I incorporate your feedback I promise to cite you as the source.
BTW to save anyone in the same situation the hassle; in order to delete all comments from your drupal database you need to not only trucate the ‘comments’ table but also the ‘nodecommentsstatistics’ table, else the comments will be gone but you’ll still see ‘xyz comments’ under each post on your front page.
