I have been baffled by the phenomenon of random anonymous spam being put into old old posts of mine. I suppose it makes some sense if you assume that enough LJ account holders don't screen their comments for spam, and if you assume that there's enough search engine robots crawling the web, looking for content. Given those two things, it's like planting seeds. Spam seeds that grow into mighty bushes bearing spam fruit.
This post is getting silly.
Still, I think I figured out how to default my LJ account to friends-only comments. No more fake handbag comments!
This should have been an easier decision to make, given that there are maybe 5 people who will read this, and you're already on my friends list.
