Lj Comments Poll - I'm curious!

Poll #464699 LiveJournal Comments

Who do you allow to comment in your personal lj by default?

Anyone can comment, even anonymous can comment.
Only registered users can comment (i.e. only those who have an lj account)
Only people I have listed as friends can comment on my entries. (If you choose this option, please leave an explanation as to why in the comments - I'm seroiusly curious)

Do you get your comments emailed to you?

Yes, of course I do! That way I can read each one without having to go back, and I can pick up late comments easily!
No, never. (If you choose this answer, a comment of why you don't have them emailed would be helpful!)

Comments welcome and encouraged :D

There is a setting under your "Info" page where you can set message board options. One of those is "Who can reply to your entries". I had thought you deliberately set that. Now this may be my ignorance but isn't going friends only more than just setting your posts to only be viewable by your friends? If so that setting should do the trick otherwise I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Yeah, the commenting part is a bit different. In that space you mentioned you can set the comments to be friends only as an lj default... which means that only friends can comment, but it doesn't have anything to do with who can view the lj. You could have a completely public lj, but no one could comment on it unless you named them as a friend.

There's also a way to make the entire lj viewable to friends only be default but I think that's a bit tricky/involved.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure if you go to "Manage" then "Info" then the checkbox where it says "Enable message boards" there's a drop-down box that says "Who can reply to your entries". I suspect you have "friends only" selected, but you can change it to "registered users" That would eliminate any anonymous comments.
