I hate spam.

In the past few weeks, I had a couple or more spam comments on some of my entries. SPAM, as in those comments which just contains links and doesn't have anything to do with the actual post?

So usually I just delete those. I don't really want to have to moderate the comments but if this keeps up, I may have to. Er, I really hope not. How 'bout you guys n gals? How do you deal with this spam business? :)

I hate spam and I don't understand why people have to do it. I kept getting Viagra spams so I had to start moterating mine, I didn't want to but I just couldn't have stupid things like that on my comments.

I have recently gotten spam comments saying that they want all blog readers to come to a web page to down loa free mp3 material-that is the main reason I have my bog set on moderate comments

I keep getting them spams too! Sorry, I've no idea on how to stop it. Probably the only way is to switch on the comment moderation!

Or change your comment settings to accept only Registered Users, which means anonymous users can't comment.

I've often found in the past that malicious spammers will go through days and days of your blog spamming the same message. So all my posts older than 14 days have moderated comments.

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts! I really might need to start moderating my comments, but we'll see if the spamming stops. :)

When I was still on blogspot, I once had to erase 1,500 spam comments on a single entry!

It's one of the reasons that convinced me from moving over to a wordpress platform. Wordpress has plug-ins that automatically screen for spam, and I don't have to force people to sign up for new accounts too.
