Since switching over to WordPress 1.5, I have been drowned in SPAM directed at this blog. After a few days away from the internet, the comments awaiting moderation had grown to 2371. I have found a few real comments floating amongst that, but my apologies if you have had trouble registering a comment or I have inadvertently deleted your comment.

Comments mean a lot to me and are an important part of the blogosphere (in fact I don’t like highlighting or linking blogs that don’t have them). However, till I can get a wordpress plugin that effectively deals with SPAM, the comment moderation will be slower than normal around here. My apologies.

I use Haloscan for comments. They have spam built-in in the form of ads, but I NEVER get spam through them.

I’ve just installed a wordpress plug-in called akismet. It has caught all today’s SPAM, which currently stands at 561. Things are looking up!
