…and then, some MORE spam! Hell, that’s what’s been happening to my blog. I just keep getting an irritating 70kb long anonymous comment daily full of links to adult sites, colleges, warez sites and whatnot. Plus with Blogger crawling like a tortoise, it’s a pain in the ass to get these big comments deleted.

The most irritating thing is that although I use CAPTCHA, image verification, for my blog comments, I always end up getting spam. I tried unsuccessfully by removing it to see what happens, and it simply opened the spam floodgates. And you know what, there are so MANY blogs around, that I visit, that DON’T keep image verification enabled, and still end up getting no spam…!!!

Maybe it has something to with the fact that 75% of my blog’s visitors come via search engines, so maybe spam bots find my blog a ‘tasty’ target. No offence meant to Hormel Foods Inc…
