About that canned meat


Not long ago I had to enable comment moderation because of that kind of comments. It didn’t really have any effect so I switched the word verification on. Something I didn’t want to do as I struggle to read what letters I’m supposed to put in myself.  I realized that I’d missed a blog when I had about 50 sapm comments on one post in a row (I presume it was to make up for the comments it couldn’t leave on the other blogs). Next thing that happened was the unwanted comments came back, because somehow the verification turned off!

For the last couple of days I’ve only had real comments, which has been a pleasure. Unfortunately I don’t get as many comments as I used to. I know I haven’t had much to say recently, but I imagine some readers just can’t stomach jumping through the hoop just to say a few words.


An email gets trashed if it addresses me as Dear one or Dear friend. I don’t read Russian and I don’t take orders from anyone. I’m not afraid of the FBI and I certainly don’t open documents. I don’t gamble, take drugs or want to enlarge something I haven’t got – so there!

I never get anything interesting like that!

Hi Anji,

I've been getting loads of them since I turned off word verification.

Why can't blogger return to the readable verification?

Dru: Thanks for the solidarity!

Caroline: I'll be happy to forward them to you...

PM: I think that there are more problems since it's supposed to have been harder for them to leave comments.

I seem to get more spam when I have the comments set to all users which includes the anonymous ones.

I currently have mine set to registered users only with word verification set to off. That works to keep the spam comments away from me.
