I'm temporarily disabling anonymous comments to deal with an annoying bot incursion. (I'm growing tired of deleting random chunks of Japanese text about bedding, job-hunting, and Denmark.) If anyone knows another way of curing the bots, I would love to hear about it!

Have you tried turning on captcha for anon comments? I don't know how well that actually works to block anon spam, but I know LJ has it as an option.

Aha, it's here: http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/?cat=privacy

But if you have already tried that and it didn't work, then sorry, I've got nothing. :(

This has worked quite well for me so far, btw!

Have you heard of a lovely new page LiveJournal set up for reporting bots? http://www.livejournal.com/abuse/bots.bml

I had to do the same thing myself.

I have absolutely no idea what the point of any of that might be.
