Because I Had Nothing Better To Do Today...

I have enabled comment moderation.

This morning I was spammed in Chinese (using Babelfish it seems it may be a private investigation firm... yeah, like I'd hire someone who is spamming a blog) on no less than THIRTY of my posts and it is continuing even as we speak. As quickly as I can go in a delete them, a new one shows up.

So... all comments will be moderated for now until this stops. It's far easier to decline a comment than it is to go in and delete it after it is posted.

I'm sorry. I HATE moderation. I HATE word verification. But more than those, I HATE SPAMMERS.

May all you blasted spammers be relegated to the deepest part of hell.

I don't blame you. They got me too.

I put posts older than a day on moderation. I figure I will see any funny stuff on the day I actually post.

Good luck. They are a nuisance.

I hear you.
I was getting spammed on OLD posts on Blogger so I have Comment Mod on my old posts only...at this time.

It's Extremely annoying.
Another pet peeve of mine is ROBO-CALLS.
Automatic Pre-recorded marketing calls. There is no way to tell them to STOP and no way am I going to press any buttom to "take me off the list"...it only verifies that they got a live phone.

Tech is great, but nefarious criminally minded slugworts like it too. The slimes.....

To make it even worse, one of my friend's blogs was hacked, twice this week by Chinese spammers. Ugh.
