Posts tagged ‘spam’

It took about six weeks, but the comment spammers have finally found me. I already had compulsory moderation for first-time posters, but basically I’m getting nothing but spam comments.

If you are a real person and want to leave a comment, here are the things to know:

  • You must enter a name and email.
  • If Akismet thinks you are a spammer, you lose.
  • If this is your first comment, it will go to moderation.
  • If there are any links in it, it will go to moderation.
  • If you comment again with the same name and email (and I approved your previous comment) then comments without links are automatically approved.

Comments are encouraged (I know you are out there, I can see you in my website logs.) But spam is evil and moderation is unfortunately one of the few defenses I have.
