Logging and screening

I've noticed that a number of users and communities log IP addresses either for anonymous users or for all users, or that they screen comments, and I wonder what their motivations are. Have you had bad experiences? Are you simply cautious? Something else?

Poll #251754 privacy and security

I have disallowed commenting in my journal to

nobody
45(66.2%)
anonymous/not-logged-in users
20(29.4%)
non-friends
3(4.4%)

If you have disallowed commenting for at least one group: why?

I have banned certain users from commenting in my journal

Yes
23(34.8%)
No
43(65.2%)

I screen

no comments
49(73.1%)
anonymous comments
7(10.4%)
non-friend comments
11(16.4%)
all comments
0(0.0%)

If you screen comments: why do you do so?

I log IP addresses for

nobody
18(26.5%)
anonymous comments
12(17.6%)
everyone
38(55.9%)

I typically post

public
36(52.9%)
friends-only
26(38.2%)
filtered
6(8.8%)
private
0(0.0%)

Any other comments? (or comment on this entry)
