More Site Notes – Comments Hung In The Spam Filter

All:

We are getting hammered with spam. Christmas season is here, so if you need any cheap Ugg boots, Viagra without a prescription, cheap sunglasses, Russian mail order brides or discount designer clothes (no, they are real Ralph Lauren, we swear), let me know.

Sometimes legit comments get hung in the filter, so be patient, we are not censoring or moderating the comments, it just takes a while to sort through a thousand or so spam comments to pick out the real ones before deleting the rest. If you post multiple links in a comment, it will get caught because that is a common identifier of a spam comment. I’ve seen single comments with over a hundred links in it – most of those come from Russia, China or Vietnam.

  1. Yes, I’ve noticed an increase in Viagra assaults… seriously? Does anyone read any more.
    I’ve been accused to ‘censoring’ comments, etc. when I have not… but it does have the liberal bashes something to do.

    • Probably using the words “hung” and “Viagra” in the same post wasn’t the best idea but yeah, we get the accusation as well. That’s why I remind folks ever now and again that we don’t do that. I’ve only ever banned one commenter and that was because he used pointless profanity and posted a vile profane sexist rant at a site that had supported us in the early days of the blog.
