A little while ago, I changed the commenting policy on wabson to stop the spam that had started apprearing on the blog. I don’t think I ever mentioned this to anybody, however, so here’s the deal.
- Anybody who hasn’t commented on a previous blog entry needs to be approved by me and your comments will be held in moderation until I do this.
- If you have commented before then your comment should be approved automatically, so long as you put in the same email address each time.
- WordPress will never publish your email address on the public site, so don’t be afraid about typing it in.
I hate comment moderation, but something needed to be done to stop the spam and this is clearly less evil than filtering everything. As I say, just make sure you put the same email in each time, please :-).
Of course having said this, I haven’t had any spam comments in the last week or so. Is it spammer holiday season, perhaps?
