I screen anonymous posts to this journal.

Almost all anonymous posts to date are junk. I just removed two, from the same IP, the first of which was in Japanese (most are), and the second which, in English, asked me to contact the poster.

(No links in either)

Now, what is the point of the latter? With no ID, I can hardly friend them, email, them, go to a web site, or anything except just ignore it.

I don't seem to get them now I've set my journal to screen non-friend posts.

I have non-friend ones screened.

I'm switching to banning anonymous comments, on the principle they're all junk. Let's see how that goes.

Perhaps it's an abandoned bot that's gone wrong (or was never right). Given the consistency of the IP address though I'm surprised LJ hasn't blocked it.

I've never had an anonymous comment from someone I didn't know. Weird.

Maybe they haven't got to 'C' yet.
