11/24/2005: Comment Spam
Up until about a month ago, I never had a problem with spammers putting junk in the comments on this site, mainly because I use blosxom, which isn’t a very popular blogging program among non-technical folks, and so the spammers weren’t targetting it.
Well, they’ve figured it out, so there were a number of spam comments advertising various drugs in there, annoying me.
Hopefully this change will suffice for now. I’d hate to have to have folks register to be able to post comments, as some sites do.
Anyway, we’ll have to wait and see. Unfortunately the spammers are engaging in a bit of an arms race, so the rest of us have to cope with this kind of annoyance from time to time.
Just another reminder- please consider subscribing to the site to be notified when I make new postings.
