Oh bother!

I was looking at my comments, and saw what was an enormous amount of spam comments.

Soooo... I went in to delete them and unfortunately I deleted all those comments that actually mean something to me.  So if you see that one of your comments has been deleted, please do not take offense, it was an accident on my part.

I went in and changed a few options, so only registered comments will be able to come my way.  Hopefully that will take care of my problem.  I also deleted my blog address from Facebook.

I'm afraid those stupid spammers found me!  ACK!

I seem to have good luck with only open ID/registered users, and if the comment is on post older than 4 or 5 days I have to allow it to be published. Others just moderate all their posts.

I had a day a bit back where I got a bunch of spam comments, too.

I don't have much trouble with spam, but I don't allow comments to auto-publish, so I can check each one. I guess if I had tons of folks commenting that would get old quick, but I really don't.
Anyway..I hope this fixed it for ya!

Hope the spamming stops for you! I don't know why people want to do these things. Grrrr.

It happens. I had one post that was just a quote and I got a wonderful, verbose comment about how brilliantly I'd explained the topic in my post. Ah, spammers, brightening days everywhere... ;-)
