Blog Spammers Are in Full Force

I've noticed that I get TONS of blog spam lately. If I didn't have to approve all of the comments left on my blog I'd have some really interesting links for all of you to see thanks to all of the spammers that start out their comments with statements like, "Your blog is very helpful..." and then go on to post fifty links to electronics or off-limits sites.

So, I think I'm going to take that extra annoying step of adding the spam verification thingy for commenting on my blog (i.e. the one I never update). I'm sure I've complained about these in the past but now I have finally seen the light.

If anyone still reads this blog I'd love to hear from you again. I'm thinking about getting back into it. Facebook is fun, but it doesn't really give me a chance to get things off my chest.

Happy New Year to all of you (i.e. both of you that read this).

This is a test. I like eggs.

Happy New Year to you, too.

Word verification can be a pain, but it can add some fun, too. I always enjoy when people define their words as part of their comment.

WV: (mettl) Don't be alarmed-those spammers are just testing your mettl.

Just think, this could add a whole new dimension, another layer of richness, to your blog. What's not to love?

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I don't mind word verification at all and I like Karen's idea.

Oh, and do you have your posts set to close comments automatically after a set time? That cuts down on spam, too, especially if you're not an uber-frequent poster. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.... )

I hope that you can return to regular blogging soon. I've missed your posts.

I hope that the family is well.

I like eggs, too. That's why we have chickens.
