Sorry, but I’ve had to shut off commenting to my blog, not that I got that many real ones to begin with. My site has been hit hard by spam bots and over the last week I’ve probably spent several hours just deleting comments (20 at a time) and still have loads more to go. I speculate that within one week I’ve probably had more than 20,000 spam comments that were left on my blog, what a bummer.
It’s a real pain because I really enjoy those few comments that real people leave me. Something happened to the programming of this blog a long time ago that wouldn’t allow me have comments and filter them at the same time. So I either have open comments which means I am suseptible to spam or I have no comments. Previously, I just dealt with the sporadic spam and spend about 20 minutes a week deleting them all, but now this is just ridiculous.
So, until I find a solution, please feel free to email me with any comments you might have wanted to post. No matter how small of a comment, I REALLY LOVE to hear from friends, family, readers, and friends I just haven’t met yet. My email address is r.o.b.a.y.r.e (at) a.o.l.com, remove the periods and put the @ symbol you know where. Thanks
