Blogger Spam

We are taking a brief break due to technical difficulties.

I just got my first Blogger Spam today ... and I've just changed my settings to require that folks replying to my posts must have a Blogger user identity (freely available).

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

Thank you.

You can go to Settings > Comments > Show Word Verifcation > Click yes. This will stop the machine spammers and you can keep the allow "anyone" to comment. If a live person is spamming you I guess they could get an account and keep spamming

Thanks for the tip ... I'll try this setting and see if the spammer problem doesn't come back.
