New Blog

Or
“My Battle With Spam”

.: Lately my blog has been under attack. I receive on average 1,000 comment spams every 5 hours or so. It’s a pain in the ass to clean up, and even more so if people try to comment. What ends up happening is I simply delete everything, because there’s just no way in hell I’m scanning through all that spam.

.: So now I’ve installed an updated form of wordpress, and their comment filter looks pretty darn good. In the fifteen or so minutes I’ve had it, it’s caught about 25 comment spams and hasn’t let a single one slip through. Now all that is need is for someone here to comment and see if their comment gets past the filter. I have it set so that once you have posted a comment, you shouldn’t be bothered by the filters ever again. We shall see.

(Post something in the comments already!)

    What should I post, though?

    you\’ve left us very little to comment on.

    I am sorry, but I am afraid I cannot allow the name Anonymous any more — many spammers use it and it automatically trips the filter – Cody

    VERY, very nice layout. Though you should get your lazy ass to update more often.

    I dig the new theme. Earth tones are great, and the more Codys the better!
