So – my little known and infrequently visited web site has become quite popular with the spammers. Comment spam has been pouring in at somewhere around a 100 to 1 ratio of spammers to actual comments. I went back and shut off the comments on all previous posts.
I’m going to spend a little more time trying to figure out how to stop that. I’ve got a plugin that’s supposed to help / fix / stop comment spam – and *if* it’s working, I’d hate to see what I’d get if it wasn’t working.
On the up side – I’ve almost got the Facebook connection figured out. Sooner or later things here should cross post automatically. We’ll see how that works out.
I’m leaving comments on for this post (for now) but still sending them all to moderation. I’ll see what the ratio is on a post that doesn’t cross with FB and a post (later date) that does cross with FB. If I can get some numbers, maybe that will help me. Maybe not – but we’ll see.
