Never ending spam

Well, it has finally happened, I am getting attacked by spam. I knew when I set up this site the occasional spam I was getting wouldn’t last long. Eventually my site would be hit by the spam-bot spammers, and today is that day. I’ve gotten more spam this morning that I have all year. Thankfully, none of it actually goes to my site, but getting those emails is a bit annoying. I don’t like CAPTCHA, never have, so I’m trying a new spam blocker. You will notice when you leave a comment you have to copy and paste the ‘password’ that is given. I have tested it, and it seems to work fine. I think it’s a lot easier than CAPTCHA, since you can just highlight it, copy it and paste it. You don’t have to try and ‘see’ anything or type anything. Let me know what you think of it. Is it too intrusive? Is it not working for you? Is it making my site slower? Have you left comments before and now after you leave a comment you are not seeing your comment? I have a feature turned on that if I’ve approved your comment before, your comment should be automatically activated and you should see it instantly. If that has happened in the past, but is not happening now, please let me know. As we all know, spam is on ongoing issue and I don’t want anyone to be turned away from my site because of a spam blocker I have on. So please let me know your thoughts and experiences. Thanks.

  1. Don’t know if you have gotten any comments from me but I usually see them up on top. Anyway I’m Testing this for you. See you Wednesday.

  2. Hey, JoAnn. I am leaving a comment from my laptop to see if I can copy and paste. Seems to have worked. I am slow at learning how to use a laptop keyboard, lol.
