A note from the management…

In the past few days, I’ve been innundated with spam posts. And I mean innundated — a dozen an hour, on average. Now, if people really liked my Smells like fresh paint post enough to post comments about it, that would be awesome. But since the comments I have been getting all say things like “be uuquxv” and “oso icef,” I assume it’s either spambot postings or the ravings of phone crazies.

So, my solution is to require visitors to register and log in before making comments. I don’t know if:

  • That will fix the problem
  • It will be such a pain that normal people won’t post

But since I can measure the traffic on one finger right now anyway, it seems like a reasonable solution. Let me know if you think otherwise…


An update: I’ve enabled a spam filter for the site. Consequently, I’ve also turned off the requirement to register before posting. This is all a learning experience for me… but from your perspective, the site should be back to normal.
