Please understand that your comments are wanted.
However, because of a spam attack from an online poker site, posting a hundred random comments with the URL of their site, I have decided to require approval before comments are made viewable.
Sorry for the delay that this will mean. Just post your comments, and I will approve them.
I’ve switched to WordPress 1.5 and am using the tools in that. They included a mass-delete that’s helpful.
Grrr. The Blog Spammers found a way around my anti-spam measures and they’re flooding me with comments filled with links to web sites. So far, keyword moderation is holding them back from public view, but I still have to deal with them.
I have put some other anti-spamming measures into effect, and now commments are unmoderated again. If your post contains more than 2 URL’s or any on a list of “spam words”, the comment will be automatically deleted. I can’t tell you what the words are because this comment would be automatically deleted!
