    If like me you occaisionally forget to turn comments off when setting up a WP blog and you're getting sick of deleting comments use this trick

    I know that you can turn comments off, but that doesn't change the comment ststus of anything published prior to turning off comments, and this will keep the pages comment free without having to install askismet
