My one year blogiversary is coming up. To pin down the exact date I went through my old posts and discovered some had far more comments than is the norm here. I've noticed some spam in my last couple of posts. This has never been a problem before, but it seems it's becoming one. I hope not, because the last thing I want is a spam filter. I hate word verification. You finish composing this incredibly deep and meaningful comment, hit enter and then -zap- you're right back where you started. Even more than that, though, I hate the idea of seeing spam and then having to delete it.
I saw where Blogger has put together a new spam filter that supposedly dumps anything it deems untoward in a separate folder. Thus far I haven't seen mine. Now, I may just be trying to build myself up into something far bigger than my little presence on this world wide web, but I'd like to keep comments free from scrutiny by The Man. Especially since I am The Man and don't wish to be bothered by it.
For those of you using comment moderation, how much spam do you get?
P.S. I've been writing today. Still waiting on my last beta to get back to me on Skully, so I've started a new story (long or short? I can't decide) about ghosts in Savannah. Fun times.
