I'm not sure what is up with Blogger lately but as many of you know, fellow bloggers included, spam comments are going c-r-a-z-y. The spam filter gets most of them but they just keep coming more and more and more often...and today one slipped through that was obscene and offensive
(my apologies to anyone who was subjected to it). Arrgh!
I've hesitated to ban anonymous comments because many of you use that to comment and we love comments from everyone.
I also don't like the word verification feature since it was upgraded because probably 75% of the time, I can't figure it out on the first try and if I can't, I'm guessing that many of you can't either.
So for now, I've decided to just moderate all comments. I have my phone and my iPad with me most of the time so that I can approve a comment almost as quickly as it's left.
I've read on other forums that Google is working on some possible upgrades to the system that we use so perhaps they can figure out a way to help us. Let's see how this goes for now.
Thank you for understanding and please keep on commenting!
