What is it with these d*ckheads?

This morning I had to remove FOUR comments from my last post - because someone (I suspect one person) posted advertising links in my comments. Why?

Do they think that I and my readers are going to rush off and buy door mats and swimming pools as a result? (such was the diversity of the links, but they were all laid out in the same format and done the same day which is why I think a single person put them there)


Have you been plagued by this sort of thing?

And to compensate you for listening to my rant, here's a completely irrelevant photo of my orchid cactus when it was in flower:

Yup, me too. And afterwards I put my comments on moderation for a few days, then took it off, then got some nutter with a quasi religious extreme right wing rant.
Sadly I now have my comments on moderation all the time.

I've had that type too, though rarely. It unfortunately just happens--the thing that bothers me is the bloggers that don't check and leave them!!!
Have you set your moderation to receive mail every time you get a comment? It will have the comment in it so you know if it's safe or not.

Love your rust bag by the way!

Well, there aren't any sleeves, yokes, buttons, plackets or darts on fabrics - and if that doesn't sound like a non-sequitor, I don't know what does!

I used word verification for quite a while to keep out the spam, but those jerks seem to have disappeared...for now.

Thanks for the flower picture!

Several years ago, I created a blog and allowed unmoderated comments. I got lots of unwanted comments. Since then, I have my blog set to always moderate comments before they are published. Sad that we have to go to those lengths, but that's the way of the web...

My blog has a spam filter and it's very, every effective. I use a service called Squarespace, costs about $12 a month and has all sorts of features, including sophisticated traffic monitoring, a spam filter, search engine, and lots of other behind-the-scenes stuff.
