commenters need to log in?

    I want people to be able to comment on my post without having to be registered and logged in to comment. Under "Other comment settings", this box is unchecked. Yet it still prompts you to log in when making a comment. I tried unchecking "Comment author must fill out name and email" but it didn't make any difference.

    my url is: http://sunshinekir.wordpress.com

    Is there any other area I should look at editing? I'm stuck!

    Thanks,
    Kirsten

    The blog I need help with is sunshinekir.wordpress.com.

    This page > Settings > Discussion is where you set up defaults for comments.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/

    Discussion Settings
    Other comment settings
    _Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
    _Users must be registered and logged in to comment

    Note that the prompt will still appear but providing an email address and logging in are not required. There is no way for us blogger to remove the prompt. It's up to us to post instructions if we wish to tell the world that the blog comments can comment anonymously.

    Frankly, there's no way I would ever set up anonymous commenting on my blogs because I'm aware that (1) the vast and overwhelming majority of all information on the internet is spam; and (2) that over 80% of the so-called comments submitted to free hosted WordPress.com blog every day are spam.
