Now, I didn't mind the Passion spam too much. Sure, it was annoying, but at least it wasn't obscene. This morning however I received 3 spam comments advertising Indian porn (all to older entries too - if I didn't have comments emailing on I might well not have spotted them). That's the sort of thing that I don't want to have on here even for a moment so I've now turned on screening for anonymous comments. The intention for this is *only* to block spam. Anonymous comments are still welcome and I'll unscreen all the legit ones ASAP. I can't wait until the authentication patch is finally done and people will be able to leave email addresses etc for anon comments.
