Changes to Commenting

Just recently I've had an influx of spam comments on this blog!

I'd already changed the settings to prevent anonymous commenting - which eradicated a small spam problem I'd had in the past - but lately those spam bots have got cleverer. Bah.

So for now, I've enabled word verification.

I'm sorry that all you real people that read and comment will have to fill out the word verification as I know they're a total pain in the bum! Word verifications on comment forms annoy me but spam is equally annoying and a lot of those spam comments include links to websites that could contain potentially harmful content.

So I apologise for this massive inconvenience!

Have a picture of a disgruntled cat as consolation.

Riley does not like spam either.


  1. I abhor captchas, but I swear that I will buy into anything with a cute kitty on it. So... sold!

  2. That's funny, I too have had a large influx of spam comments, but when I actually go to my post online they don't appear. I would assume that the blogger filter is catching them so it's just me getting them to my inbox. Have you checked to see if they're appearing on your posts?

    It's a pain that people are so weak in the world!!


Reading all your sweet comments makes me happy! :) I appreciate each and every one and try to reply to all that I can!
