If I Wanted Your Opinion, I'd Ask For It

Pot of George has started to attract that blogging pestilence known as comment spam.

A few of my old posts have attracted comments along the lines of: "I agree with your comments about dogs, check out my pet supply web warehouse."

So I've disabled the quotes on the few plagued entries. I hope I don't have to remove the comments' function entirely.

There are ways to avoid that kind of spam. My sister had the same problem, but now her blog uses some kind of spamblocking tool. When you try to post a comment it displays a string of letters as a graphic. In order to post the comment you have to type in the letters. I don't know all the details, but apparently the automated systems that post spam comments can't (or at least don't) get around that roadblock. If you, Simon, are interested in seeing it in action (or finding out how to use it), then email or call me. I assume you can, by checking IP addresses, figure out who I am.

On blogger you just have to turn on the word verification option. Freeloaders like me get it so it's a safe bet you paying dudes do too ;-)

There's more information on their help pages at:

Now, about my pet supplies warehouse.....
