This is just a very quick post tonight to say that I am having to put word verification back on ‘Cupcakes and Cadenzas; in the hope that it will stop or a least reduce the number of spam comments that the blog is receiving.
Over the last few weeks I have been getting anywhere between 5 and 10 comments every day ranging from offers of payday loans to viagra to protein shakes for bodybuilders and I am starting to get a bit fed up with it. They are being caught by Blogger’s security and placed in the spam folder and I do have comment moderation on but it still annoys me. Perhaps it’s because I haven’t been posting regularly. I would be interested to find out if anyone else is having this problem too.
I don’t get this on my WordPress.org blogs but, having said that, I do pay a monthly fee to have all the spam caught, analysed and deleted if it definitely is spam. Blogger is free and they do a pretty good job of stopping the spam getting through but I would like to try and stop it altogether.
So that’s it for tonight. I apologise for having to do this as I know word verification can be frustrating at times but hopefully it will be a temporary measure.
As I said, I would be interested to find out if it’s just this blog having this problem or if it’s a problem affecting everyone. Let me know.
