Why I disabled Anonymous Comments

Some of you are probably wondering why I disabled Anonymous comments. I did this for several reasons. I want to weed out the Spam and make my life as a blogger easier. At the moment, I have it to where all comments are approved. Once a week, I go through them and delete comments that just do not belong on this blog. I like to keep things neat. 
I also already have a small sentence when you leave a comment that says SPAM will not be tolerated. Some spammers don't read it and post anyway. I have also had some mean readers leave comments when they do not like that they were not the ones that won. I bet the ones that did it will not do it if they had to be a registered winner. 
I do not want people that are going to be rude like that to ever win on my blog. As a matter of fact, I am hoping to catch whoever you are and BAN you. Only because  it is not fair to people that actually work hard on getting their entries in every day. =( 
I also specifically say that Anonymous Comment for giveaways will not count...yet some leave them anyway. The Anonymous comment option is the very last option on the drop down menu. It is frustrating. =( As your blogger, I work hard on getting the giveaways and posts together to give you the best I can. It takes a minute..if that to register for one of the comment options. Google is one of the easiest options. 
I hope that you all understand and I hope to bring you more giveaways soon! Thanks for reading!

  1. I can't believe how sore some people get when they loose. To leave a rude comment for a blogger just seems so ridiculous and a waste to time and energy. People should just enter more giveaways and be happy for the ones the do win. Sorry that you have had to endure the stupidity of some people.

  2. You're absolutely right, and I don't see the point to leave an anonymous comment while it's so easy et quick to register !
