Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

I had to do it...

...turn on verification for comments, that is. I just got a large load of spam dumped here, so now everyone has to pay for it. Sorry, y'all.

    Spam is rampant lately. I haven't had a problem since switching to haloscan from blogger comments which I highly recommend.

    However, I haven't moved my old blogger comments to haloscan -- wasn't sure the correct way to do it, so I get spam in the old threads that still have blogger comments, and what's really infuriating is I'll get the same one about 12 times, all at once.

    I saw the same stuff on a blog in New Zealand today and he switched to word verification also.

    By the way, word verification SUCKS when you're intoxicated. :-)

    I hear ya, Jami. It feels silly for me to have the word ver, but it's better than havin' spam comments to delete.

    And, Right On Konagod! LOL

    Sad thing is, those captcha codes only stop a percentage. I've got the best anti-spam plugins going running on my site and still get between 1 and 20 viagra spams every day. x
