Blog Spam

Somehow my blog is now the target of a good amount of blog spam. I like to think that it’s become popular enough that spammers see it as a good target because of the amount of readers I get!

It is annoying to have to start the day by removing 150 spam comments.  I decided to try a new comment spam moderation system.  I haven’t gone and implemented a captcha system yet.  I don’t want to take the nuclear option.

Anyhow if you notice you cannot leave a comment on the blog then try to get a hold of me via other options (look around the page) and I will try something else.  I’m also looking for suggestions on WordPress plug-ins.

Also, I want to take a moment and thank those readers out there.  I don’t know if the stats that I’m seeing are bots or what.  It’s nice to see that someone out there is reading.  Hopefully the amount of good comments increase.  I’ve written some stuff that I feel should be generating some discussion so please don’t be shy to chime in!
