Sad Faced Me

I am wearing a sad face because I just had to change my blog comment settings to not accept anonymous comments because of all the spam I have been getting lately.  Check your settings if you are not able to comment on my blog and maybe you need to change some settings if you are a registered user or you may have to sign up for a free Google account.

I know I have had comments from anonymous readers that are legitimate but the spam ones have ruined that option for the “good guys”.  Sorry about that but I am tired of getting emails with spam links and don’t want to expose any of my comment readers to possible infection in their computers or in mine.

Until Later,
Lynn

I have my blog set so that I have control over which replies get published. This way, anyone can comment but I have ultimate control as to whether or not it shows up on the post. Since exercising this feature I haven't had a single spam comment! Hope I'm not speaking too soon on that one! lol . . shame it comes down to this though.

I turned off the word verification on my blog, in order to make it easy to comment. I receive a lot of spam on my email address(as the comments are redirected to me) but blogger doesn't publish them on my blog. I checked a lot of spam lately and none of them were published. I don't click on the links they provide so I hope I am safe. I hate the word verification, sometimes I have to try 2 or 3 times until I guess the letters! Like now!

I too had to revert to the same. Even with all the other alternatives it just got so that the spammers are not stopping so I had to stop them..I hope

I did the same thing. So sad that the few have to ruin it for everyone else.

I had to turn WV back on because of the Anon commenters. About 4 or 5 a day and even tho they didn't get published it was a big time waster. Maybe it will die down soon.
