I had WordPress comments turned on for awhile and had a ton of spam about penis enlargement, Nigerian relatives, and how Candy wanted to make my wildest fantasies come true. I didn’t think these added much value (sorry, Candy), so I found a WordPress plug-in that turned off ALL the comments, appropriately named Disable Comments.
This adds a new item under the WP dashboard settings. I selected to disable comments everywhere. Harsh? Tell me about it.
