I Can’t Take It Any More

The comment spammers are killing me. I can’t even begin to tell you what a low ring of hell is reserved for these people. They are the lowest of the low. So I guess I’m going to have to switch my commenting software, because I just can’t keep up with the comment spam any more, and every one comes in from a unique IP address, so I can’t even block them normally.


So for now, I guess I’m going to have to go with the stuff Blogger provides for free, until I can figure something else out. For those of you using that solution already, do you still get comment spam if you turn it on without the thing where you have to approve all comments?

That means that all the recent comments will be lost. For that, I am truly sorry. Your words of wisdom will live on in my heart.

    Testing this out. The spammers will not win!

    Works. Glad you found the code. Sorry about the spammers — that’s why I put the word verification on my blog, too.

    Can I just tell you we are going to see Hall and Oates in March at the Orpheum? I am so excited.

    So will the Word Verification keep them out? Lately the spam I’d been getting looked much more like normal comments than before. I almost have a feeling they figured out a way to work around the scripts I was using and just write directly to my comments.txt file. Bastiges.

    H&O – Wow…I used to have such a crush on John Oates.

    I haven’t had a prob with comment spam since I went to word verification. Hope you have the same experience.

    I am so excited!

    Now I know what Christine looks like!
    I use blogger comments on my other site, no problems…yet.
