    When people wish to comment on my blog, after filling in the required boxes,,,email, name and url…they are asked to log in to continue. How can I eliminate the log in requirement?
    Thanks
    Blog url: http://sggphoto.wordpress.com/

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

    BTW…I have unchecked the box in my comment page under discussion to eliminate the requirement, but it is still there.

    This page > Settings > Discussion is where you set up defaults for comments.

    Unfortunately, if their email has ever been used for a WordPress.com account, they MUST sign in or they must use a different email.

    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.

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