GAH! enough already!

My poor blog has been getting a lot of recent activity in the comment section. Sadly, none of the comments are from actual people. In the last two days I have moderated at least 60 spam comments on old posts.
I am considering finding some sort of plug-in that will help me to manage the spam, but in the meantime, I have added LOTS of words to the blacklist, so if you do comment and you don’t see your comment right away, it’s because you used one of the words on the blacklist and I will have to moderate your comment before it will appear on the blog.
So quit trying to sell me cialis and viagra, ok! I don’t want any!

    Thanks for the dog pictures. Watson is cute but I would still like Zelda! It is nice that Penelope isn’t bothered by puppies. Right now no dog is best for us. Maybe someday we will have a dog again but then again maybe not!!

    Love, MOM

    You know, Fred is available for adoption… He is not unlike Zelda in many ways.. :)

    I’m glad I’m not the only one getting hundreds of comment spam. I try to keep an eye on my email to see when new people comment, but lately everything has been lost in a wave of garbage.

  3. Hi Kim.

    Here are some Captcha plugins and other utilities you can install on wordpress to force people to do something (like the squiggle letters or simple math problem) to post a comment. I need to install one of these too, have been lazy about it so far. :)

    Oh wait. Yes, I have. I’m sorry, but I just don’t have it in me right now to type it all out again. Besides, it was just ramblings anyway. You didn’t want to hear me go on and on about this, right?

    penis. If this comment made it, you should probably update your filter :D.

    Apparently I should. Boy George also managed to escape moderation… interesting…
