FYI… Comments

By John | June 5, 2008

I have been using AKISMET for managing my “comments” SPAM for over a year now and up until a few weeks ago it has always worked brilliantly.  In fact I used to brag that I didn’t need no-stinking CAPTCHA…

However, now it looks like AKISMET throws every comment into SPAM and I have realized how horrible the AKISMET service is (their interface stinks).  To this point I want to apologize to anyone who has recently posted comments and has seen a delay or worse never seen their comment posted.  As a rule I never delete comments unless they are SPAM or deemed offensive to other people.  As a last resort I am going to put in place a CAPTCHA this weekend or drop everything and become a for-hire mercenary with a mission to terminate all SPAM’ers in the universe (I haven’t decided yet)….

If any of you other GURU bloggers have any suggestions I am all ears.

As always….

Thank You for reading my Blog…

    Not suggesting I’m a guru blogger but akismet + Bad Behavior work well for me. akismet did go through a short phase of listing my comments as spam but I am happy to say that it has got over it now. :)
