Continued Comment Commentary

I have, finally, applied geeksblog’s MT comment closer. The result to you: nothing, really, except that after a week or two people cannot leave comments. Although this will inconvenience the casual viewer, my regular readers will not be affected (thanks, mom!).

( I have currently closed down to one week, but hope to expand to two open weeks). I love comments, but question the value of a comment posted 12 months later (many are spammers).

Please keep commenting. Sorry to go on about it, but the few comment spammers out there take up more of my time than they’re worth. This should help me, and ultimately you, valued reader.


Comments

  1. I understand completely. I’m starting to get the comment spam also. Did you know about the MT comment blacklist? I haven’t used it yet but will probably need to soon.

  2. Suzi,
    Sorry it took so long to respond, but yes, I have it running now, and update it daily. JayAllen has a nice RSS feed of the updates, making getting them painless (there’s still a lot of cut-and-paste, but it’s not onerous).

    Thanks for reading!
