apologies

Filed under: misc — bipolarinparis @ 11:59 pm

I have been deleting huge amounts of very foul, offensive spam over the last few hours and trying (with partial success) to implement some anti-spam plugins.

Bear with me while I try to find the best way to sort this out.

For now, I have a very sensitive spam filter installed which may send your comments into an invisible limbo while they await moderation. Please don’t re-submit your comment, I will approve it as soon as I can.

You will also have to type a numeric code into the field just before the submit button.

I’ve also had to disable trackback as I also got some nuisance trackback spam.

I hope none of the above causes too much inconvenience. Please continue to comment!!

  3. I’ve had to approve each comment on my site manually for a few months now. They seem to never stop or take a vacation these evil people.

    I like your security code idea. May to have look into that myself.

  4. Sorry to see that your site has been affected by such vile material. Good luck with setting upwhatever protection measures are needed.

  5. I found that turning on automatic comment moderation for old posts cut down on the spam (as well as your choice of ways to kill large numbers of comments to be moderated). The plugin can be found at TheUberGeeks, and I just made the things in my needs-moderation queue have the default button be “delete” and not “do nothing”.

    It really is a shame that people do things like this but I’m glad to see you are fighting back!
