Okay, so since loads of people hate the word verification thingie, I nixed it. Unfortunately, ever since, I've been getting a shit-ton of 'anonymous' obnoxious comments and spam. So, in an effort to get rid of that crap, I ditched the ability to make anonymous comments on this blog. (This seems to be the only affected blog of mine so far.) Most of the people who stop here don't comment anonymously anyway, so I don't think this is a big deal, but if for some reason, you can't comment because of the changes, drop me a note via email and I'll see what I can do.
If the spam continues to be a problem, I'll put everything back the way it was - including the word verification. Sorry. I just don't want to have to deal with lewd and lacivious comments or comments trying to peddle repulsive items, and the atrocious grammar/spellings that go with that crap.
Thank you for your understanding and thanks for stopping by the blog to leave real comments. You actual people are awesome.
Touch wood, no spam yet!! Sorry you got hit as soon as you took the word verification off your blog :( I totally understand your decision to take the option of anonymous away - hopefully this helps!ReplyDelete
What a pain! The word verification thingy is obnoxious, but I'd rather deal with that than have you crushed by spam.ReplyDelete
And I'm so anonymous in "real" life, I don't care to be anonymous online. ;-)
Huh, that's weird! I hate the word verification thingy too, but if it stops the spam... *shrugs*ReplyDelete
Yay for you, Janet! I wouldn't wish this crap on anyone. So far, no spam since I killed the ability to post anonymously. Stupid dork spammers ruin everything.ReplyDelete
I hear that, Deb. Both in the obnoxious thing and the anonymous thing. I'm in stealth mode in real life. I don't need that online, too.
LOL, Nat, we were posting at the same time. Like I said to Janet, so far no spam since the change. Yay!ReplyDelete
