Wordpress is a great CMS, it's popular and that's why it's targeted.
I agree with those suggesting disabling registration, especially with new sites. Legit users aren't going to register just to comment on a new blog, those are 100% spammers.
You can still allow comments, but even then I wouldn't go with the default setup. There are dozens of ways to successfully engage in conversation on wordpress with plugins.

What's your target audience, work back from that point and make it easy for those people to discuss.
