WHO'S HASSLIN' ME?

I am so angry! Someone posted an ad as one of my comments! What?! I really don't want to give credit to some knucklehead, but I just had to chat about it.

Please tell me if this has happened to you!

It's comment spam. The bane of all bloggers. Not necessarily a personal attack... I tell myself this because I used to get hundreds a day... until my fancy Wordpress plugin banished them all.

You're not alone, Michelle. In the past 10 months, almost 18,000 spam comments have been blocked on my blog. I highly recommend SpamKarma2 (if you start doing your blog in WordPress). Sorry I can't be more helpful: I know noting about Blogger.

Michelle, blogger has a feature to prevent this. You have to turn on the feature in the dashboard that forces the comment-leaver to read some mangled characters. Computer programs (like the comment spam you had) can't accomplish this task (at this time).

It's in the dashboard under settings-> comments and is called "word verification." Here's a link to the help page on it:

Attention all spammers... the express elevator to the 10-the circle of Hell is now boarding.

That word verification works so well... even I have to reenter it a few times to get it right.

Let's see... today's word is:
awckixr. Tomorrow's post brought to in part by the number 9xi!

(Yes, that's a factorial and not an exclamation mark). ;)
