Fighting the spam fight

Even though I have an Akismet plug-in installed, I wanted to see if I could whittle down the amount of spam the site’s been getting. I changed the comment setting so that users need to register and be signed in before they can comment. However, I don’t know if that inhibits non-spam folk from commenting or not–I’m used to signing in on other sites, but I know it can be a pain. I don’t get many comments, so I’m not sure how much of a barrier it is. I do know that for the first time since I don’t know when, I have had no spam for two days running. It’s kinda nice. Let’s see if it lasts.

If it’s impossible to comment here, you can let me know over on my LJ, which is where I funnel these posts.
