Spammers, Spammers Every Where!

I guess I've been really lucky so far. Until today, I hadn't been hit once with spam on my blog. I should have known that luck couldn't hold out. Suddenly today the storm blew in. (Frown) I was getting hit as many as five times in less than thirty minutes. At first I tried to just keep coming back in and deleting the spam, but there's only one of me a lot of them, so for now I've had to change the settings on my blog so those posting a comment have to type in a code word that is shown to them when they go to post.

I'm sorry, I know it's a pain, but I just didn't know what else to do for now. That little code word can't stop all spam of course, but it will stop all the auto spam. Maybe this is just a wave and in a couple of days I'll be able to set things back as they were. I hope!

I've seen spam on one blog... haven't been hit yet. This is a good idea. I didn't notice it on the Blogger menu... I'll look for this so I know how to use it if I need to. Thanks for sharing.
