The rock: I started my blog back in November. I don't require a sign-in. I currently receive about 10 spam comments for every 1 real comment. On the plus side, the spam filter catches almost all of them.

The hard-place: There are several blogs that I have visited where I would have left a real comment, but when asked to provide a log-in I gave up. I don't imagine I'm the only one. I don't know how you would measure the impact of this.
Thanks gmw. Yeah, I wrote this long post and didn't even know I had to sign in. So I go to publish it and--poof, it's gone. Personally I'll deal with the spam. Thanks for the feedback.
