This is now the second time this has happened in the last 2 weeks. I don't do anything but my settings / discussion settings get changed. The following two settings were changed to being "checked" rather than "unchecked".
- An administrator must always approve the comment
- Users must be registered and logged in to comment
When this happens I also have to go in and bulk edit all my posts to "allow comments" or enable comments, as they are all disabled.
Others seem to be having this issue too, is this a new WP 3.0 bug?
When this first happened I changed all the settings and then deactivated my plugins. After getting bombarded with SPAM I put the few plugins I use back active. Everything seemed fine until about 1-2 weeks later BAM it happened again.
