Comment moderation begins today

I'm sorry ; I'm had to put in comment moderation and now everyone who comments here has to copy the odd ball words before being published :)

I don't have a huge number of commenters at this blog. So, I had a surprise today when looking at thie dashboard. I found over 20 comments for a single post. Of course, you could already guess it- spam. Of the Asian type. I don't even have the slightest idea what was written .

It is getting harder not to have comment moderation. I also have switched on my personal blog to comment moderation for the same darn reasons.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sad but true - I can't begin to tell you how much Russian spam I get over at GeneaBloggers.com

Here are some resources on setting up a comments moderation policy:

Thank you Thomas.
The more we can help each other combat these type of problems, the better we all are.

Call it Blogger solidarity ;)
