Two years ago we averaged one hundred spam Comments a day. Last year it went up to one thousand a day. Right now we get between 1500 & 2000 spam Comments a day & I decided to do something about it.
Spam Commenting (& attempted Registration by Spammers) has become a huge problem. Spam is profitable & almost impossible to prosecute so as the internet has become bigger & faster – so have the activities of Spammers.
Yesterday I implemented a spam blocker & it has reduced our Spam Comments to about ten per day, excellent!
But – it is possible that genuine Commenters may find themselves blocked & unable to post a Comment; if so I apologise in advance & ask that you request to be White-listed in the form that appears when you are blocked.
You can also use our Contact Form to request unblocking.
Or you can email me at nico.morrison [AT] gmail [DOT] com & I will unblock you personally.
What to do? I hate spam & spammers but that won’t make them go away…
Thank you in advance for your forbearance & please do Comment on our posts.
(for those interested technically, we use several databases to check whether a spammer has already been reported – a main one is Stop Forum Spam to which we contribute).
