Blog Update

Just a wee, quick note.

I’m getting insane amounts of spam these days, and didn’t want to be so annoying as to install a “capcha” – so I’ve gone with the seemingly lesser of a few evils: I’ve activated the “close comments after 21 days” plugin.

If you want to comment on a post older than that, you’ll have to settle with emailing me.

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming….

    Just so you know, your story about your dog liking to lick the “wet spot” in the bed gets brought up way too many times at my apartment. Which is funny, since I don’t have a dog.

    Yes I second Spam Karma. I’m just waiting on an upgrade for my own site to implement it as I’ve had to turn off practically everything. CAPTCHA isn’t that bad either.

    I strongly dislike captcha programs. They annoy me. The closing of comments on old posts is a way better solution in my books.

    I’ve noticed that I almost never get spam on new posts. Ever since I started closing comments on old posts, I’ve gotten approximately two spam. It’s great.

    After just one day, it’s working like a charm. I was getting up to 300 spam/day in my moderation queue – after installing the “close comments” feature, I’ve gotten two.
