Spammity spam, wonderful spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam! That seems to be on the menu lately and frightfully often too. Is it me or has there been an influx of spam recently?
Comments is something we bloggers love so please dear reader, keep them coming. But spamments? Not so much!
Blogger has been busy developing new thingumabobs and has given us, apart from the word verification thingy that stops spam bots, a new little tool to help fight evil spam! And fight it we will for the sake of Christmas, puppydogs, and fluffy kittens and stuff!
If you haven't discovered the latest Blogger Fight-That-Evil-Spam thingy yourself here's how you do it:
-go to Settings
-Click on Comments
- scroll down a bit till you reach comment moderation on posts older than ..
- fill in how many days you want
This way you'll never have to hunt for spam on older posts ever again.
Of course you could also opt for moderating all comments before they appear on your blog but I personally am not that keen to spam-sit (simply can't be bothered) so I've chosen not to go that route.
