spamtastic

I've received an extraordinary amount of comment spam since last week. Probably 70-100 per day. Because of this, I intially turned on the 'comment approval' requirement, which would allow comments, but they have to be approved before showing. That works great to prevent the spam from being seen, but it doesn't prevent it from actually appearing in my inbox. And I still have to remove all of it.

So today, I've dont the really annoying thing of turning on the 'registration required' settings. You can only comment if you have a TypeKey account. Yes, it is annoying. I know. I dont like it either, but I am going to have to leave it on for a couple weeks. It's not like many people comment anyway.

If you know a better way, I'm open to it.

i haven't been getting comment spam, but have been getting a lot of email spam - but then I figure that's just par for the course.

Insert spam comment here.
