TypePad saves the day, like MacGyver
I don't have the most comment traffic on my site, but I had a ton of problems with comment spam when I had comments wide open. I resorted to making folks authenticate to comment. The problem with having to sign in with a username is it's a complete pain. Personally, if I have to login to leave a comment I just skip it. Too much hassle. In this light TypePad has done a really cool thing here with the CAPTCHAs.

I feel the same way about registering with sites just so I can leave a comment. Don't make me jump through too many hoops to contribute a comment. CAPTCHAs are too much to ask though, as long as their readable.
