Thanks so much Peter - you are, as always, a star

Thanks, Peter, I think. I just received my first comment on an old entry. It was spam, also my first ever.

Oh dear, I think you just proved Peter's point

We will see. If it is just an occasional one, it is easy enough to delete.

As an update on this, I have since the limit was removed had the following:

2 spam (promotional) comments on 2 different old blog entries, which were marked for moderation and deleted without seeing the light of day
2 polite comments from total strangers on 2 different old blog entries, which were marked for moderation and approved to go live
c. 5 comments from friends on several different old blog entries, which didn't need moderating as they had commented in the past
2 comments from friends on 2 different old blog entries, which were marked for moderation (as they hadn't previously commented) and approved to go live

So for me it is working - the spam is manageable and the other comments welcome

That's good to hear Sarah! Definitely a manageable level for anyone who is checking in regularly.
