Fingers crossed ...

... no more spam comments!

A quick cruise around the Movabletype web site came up with a new plug-in for controlling the flow of spam comments. Half an hour spent installing it onto the three blogs that live on this site and I have now been spam comment free for 12 hours.

Anyone who is kind enough to take a moment to leave a comment on one of my entries now has an extra step of entering a word into a box under the comment box. I hope that it doesn't put any of my regular visitors off from having their say.

It is such a relief to open my email box and not to see notification of dozens of comments that need to be deleted! YEAH!

Yay and thanks so much for signing up at xanga just to leave a comment. :-)

Do we type the quotation marks in too?

No problem, I have to type those wacky words in to a lot of comments sections. If they work, it's worth the extra effort!

Good for you! Those weird words in boxes to prevent spammers from spamming are worth it -- anyone who resents them too much hasn't had to deal with the problem!
