Don’t get me wrong. We thrive on comments at Wasters Blog, however, we have been forced to change our policy, and comments (which were in the past always only displayed after being moderated) can now only be accepted in the first place after registration.
Apologies for the extra hassle, and please don’t stop commenting! However, scanning through almost 400 spam comments a week to find one or two real comments is not a productive thing to have to do, and hopefully registration will stop the machine/scripted submissions, and just leave the genuine ones.
See our recent comment from Brynley Heaven who’s actions we reported here, in our item about householders paying for their waste by weight. Thanks for your comments Brynley.
