I hate to do it but....

I'm SO SICK of the spam comments. You know those ones with all the boxes, or some stupid saying that leads back to a blog that is nothing.

So for now I had to turn the comment moderate on. Sorry, but I"m tired of reporting the spam and deleting those out of the comments.

Quilt Hollow said...

Can't blame you....and I'm tired of going to blogs that are loaded with advertisements now.

Let me know if that works. I keep getting comments from China and when I translate they mean nothing or use every dirty word in the book. I've put it as spam and doesn't show up in my emails but does come up on the blog.

Why do they do that? I just don't get it.

My goodness - in my 3 years of blogging, I've only had 2-3 spam messages? Wonder what I am doing right?

I've always thought those boxes/spam are spam from another country/another language.

One time I received a spam message that was so full of Islamic Terroristic threats - several pages long, and I was so upset, that I actually got LOST going to my LQS out in the country. I WAS frightened. But that was the only time it was a real message.

Good luck - sorry to hear you are bombarded by such crud.

But I DO love those flip-flops! 8-))

No problem. Seeing your quilt pics is worth the effort :-)

Spam is annoying and you know what? We can deal with the comment moderation:)

I had to go to comment moderation too. Nasty messages with links to "sex" sites.
It is not too much of a bother to moderate...better than letting you all see all that ugly stuff..

I'm with you there! They are so very frustrating.

Not a problem! I have considered the same thing- I've been loaded with them myself lately and get just as tired reporting and deleting. We all love feedback, but not that kind!
You and your blog are totally worth having my inane comments moderated, lol!!

I found that most of mine were on older posts so I have the word verification thing on and I moderate comments that are a few days old. this has fixed my problem...........moderating comments is a pain but I find I am not getting that many as most people comment on a post in the first few days of it going up...........

Oh girl...I know what you mean! Slowly but surely I began to get more and more. Most of mine were from 'Anonymous'...so, I just checked to NOT receive any Anonymous and they have stopped and that has been months and months ago!!
