In the last 24 hours a number of spam comments were entered in the queue for moderation. All were complimenting the quality of my ‘site’, but also said it was sad that there was such a lot of spam on it. 🙂
Spammer’s sense of humour, or even empathy?

  1. There is no logic to these spammers. The best one can do with blogs is to hold all comments for approval. The old BBB attracted a lot of blog spam that I had no choice but to change all comments to moderated, and the messages eventually stopped coming.

  2. Hi Jack,
    Yes that is what I do: hold all comments for moderation. I don’t have the impression that that makes them stop coming though….

  3. Hi Ton: is there an option on your software to force spammers to enter a code, to make sure they are human? That could cut down on them.

  4. Hi Jack,
    No I don’t use a captcha tool for my site. I moderate all comments, but most spam gets filtered out automatically. So I moderate the ones that remain after filtering.
    Captcha to me means passing the burden too much towards my readers, requiring them to enter an additional field.
