It had to happen sometime...

I'll have to (at least temporarily) admit...Sophia johnson got the best of me.  Not only did Sophia show up seven or eight times a day to leave her ridiculous comments, but she brought a new friend, Law Anna, with her.
(As an aside?  Law Anna would make a great name for a lawyer's horse.)  It took me a solid 20 minutes last night to report all those comments as spam.

So I have had to turn comment moderation on, which disappoints me a little, because I'm afraid I'll miss a comment and someone will get offended.  Then I remember that I offend folks on a fairly regular basis, so it probably won't matter.

Hopefully this will be a temporary fix for an increasingly more annoying issue.  I would love the Russians to get the message and leave my little blog alone.  Go steal someone else's Google juice!

We solved the problem of your friends calling our house by setting the machine to answer on the second ring. Out of the 50 phone calls we get a day, one is a friend calling. Everyone else uses our cells. We keep asking ourselves why the marketers keep calling, comment, sending emails. Do they actually ever get business?

I have Comcast for my provider and once I get a comment from some odd "person" I mark it spam and then their comments will not come anymore. Works great for me. Have you asked your provider how to block those kinds of comments? Often they have ways to do it.

And just when we get excited to see someone new visit the blog, what a disappointment when it's an unwanted guest. Like someone showing up at your door trying to sell a magazine subscription ...

Ah well. I'll still comment!

Comment moderation doesn't have any impact on the commenter - except they don't see it right away. It's you that has to do the work. I don't mind the new captcha. It's something like "mark this box if you are human" or something. Much better than having to read and type out that thing.
