9/5/08 *Special Post on Comments*

Man, this spam is really getting annoying.  I'm getting over 30 spam comments a day to moderate.  It's a royal pain to spam each individually so I've taken to bulk spamming them, trying to catch real posts from being spammed.

It appears that I missed several posts somehow this morning.  I was going fast and maybe I missed them.  Anyway, several comments went bye-bye.  That's not good, but the worse news is that those commenters maybe blocked.  Jen, you're one of them since you posted last. 

If you try to post a comment and it doesn't work, please shoot me an email or just post without using your login and let me know. I'll try to figure out a solution.  Grrr.

Sorry folks. I think this is the purpose of spam, to stop content from getting on the net.  hehe.

Enjoy your garden!


  1. I've been following your blog for the last while, and enjoying it. I'm planning to start SFG in the spring--though I'm hoping to really get started with garlic this fall.

    For spam, try the Akismet plug-in for wordpress--it usually does a pretty good job of catching the garbage.

  2. Testing, testing!

    Sinfonian, all that spam just shows how popular you are! I got my first and only one last week...I guess I haven't "made it" yet.

  3. Uh, hey. *Tap tap tap* Is this thing on? ;)

  4. Yup, it doesn't like my login, but I can still apparently comment at will, so I can live with that. ;) Hope your spammers find another hunting ground!

  5. I'm catching up after not reading in the last couple weeks. Thought I would post and see if I'm blocked as spam. Grrrr....kidding...

  6. Thanks all! Yeah, it was really bad for a while. But I did get Akismet spam filter installed and it is working well. It catches all the spam and only some of the new posters. I go through the list quick to grab the real ones on occasion.

    Now if only Wordpress would put back the spellchecker! Grrr
