A Change In Comments

This morning, a bot discovered this blog and started posting spam on it. So, I've enabled comment moderation until it goes away. Shoo, little bot! Shoo!

I'm guessing that blogger doesn't have a spam blocker plugin like Akismet or Spam Karma?

Oh, you could always turn on the "type in these letters as you see them" option. I don't think the bots have a way past that.

I don't know which method to use -- comment moderation is easier in some ways, but delays when comments are published. "Type in these letters" allows for fast publication, but is something of a chore. So which is best?

Kay said...

I hate typing in the "letters" myself. It comes down to which is better for you, imo.

I'm with you, Kay. I hate typing in those letters, so I think I'll leave it at comment moderation without the letters verification function.

If the bot doesn't show up again for a couple of days, I'll turn comment moderation off again.
