Spam sucks: A commenting change

I previously have had commenting wide open. It worked fine for a long time, but now I’m getting so much spam that I’m requiring commentors to give a name and email. I don’t want your name and email, but I’m hoping that it will curb the amount of junk that fills up this blog and wastes my time.
