    Is there a way we can set the blog to where comments are automatically approved?

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

  2. Why on Earth would you want to do that? Are you not aware that the vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam and much of it is pornography? Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to free hosted WordPress.com blogs every day is spam.

    On the spam that Akismet catches it takes only seconds to click "empty spam" and you don't even have to click "empty spam" if you don't want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam (do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it's spam.

    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam.

    For more information please take the time to read "5 things every blogger should know about spam" on this page Akismet: How it works http://akismet.com/how/

    if you set up the blog for anonymous commenting that does not require an email address and/or website URL then do be sure to set up full comment moderation ie. "An administrator must always approve the comment" because anonymous commenting is bound to increase the amount of spam your blog will receive. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#comment-moderation
