Within half an hour of changing my comments to a pop up window again, to aid those who said they have trouble commenting, I have received spam. I rarely ever get spam comments but every time I switch it to anything but embedded comments it starts up again.
I am not going to moderate beforehand and I am not going to captcha or stop anonymous comments. I am going back to embedded comments and I am really sorry if you can no longer comment on my blog. I suggest trying a different web browser to see if that makes a difference.
