Comments and spam

I set comments to "ID required" to block spammers a few months ago.

But a lot of people have recently had trouble logging in to leave comments.

So, now I've left the comments open, so anyone can leave them.

That should make it easier for you, but also easier for spammers.

If spam comes in, I may try capchas, but I hate them.

Let's see how things work for a week.

Happy commenting!

Isn't there some sort of plugin spam blocker for your blog?

I have an "Akismet" plugin on my Wordpress blog, and it's very effective at keeping out the spam.

Hi David

re: I can't find an akismet for Blogger. Any suggestions welcome!

Akismet is a plugin for wordpress - you have blogger so you will need something else.

Cheers
