Switched from AuthImage to Akismet for spam protection

Most people didn’t like the way comments were handled with authimage and also the fact that I required a user to be logged in to comment… I have just removed authimage and adopted Akismet, let me know if this is any better!!

Automattic Kismet (Akismet for short) is a collaborative effort to make comment and trackback spam a non-issue and restore innocence to blogging, so you never have to worry about spam again.

    Here’s what I don’t understand. If I HAVE to register to comment, why do I have to input my name and email address again to comment? Is there anyway that I can either comment just from putting in my name and email OR not even have a comment option unless I’m logged in? (= hook it up!

    I never had to fill in the 3 boxes above the comment textarea myself… and, I think now you can comment without having to be logged in…
