"must be registered and logged in" - not true (5 posts)

    "Users must be registered and logged in to comment" - this option does not seem to _actually_ work. spam-posting bots will bypass it quickly, I have noticed, presumably because they're going straight to the posting URL. It looks like code for checking the session is in place, so why isn't it working? checking the refering URL might be nice to do, too...

    I've been getting this, too. Comments overall are turned off and the comment for the specific post is off and I'm still getting one or two a day to moderate.

    is there a quick-fix that anyone is aware of while we wait for something more official?

    I know the previous posts are old, but this has been happening to me as well...

    thats probably not comment spam, its trackback spam.
