Comment spam

I’m being inundated with comment spam, despite having an albeit weak captcha aimed at filtering the automated stuff out.

I received 437 such comments in the last 19 hours, an average of one every 2 minutes 37 seconds.

Need to speak to Rob to see whether there’s a better way of getting shot of it. There are certain characteristics of the comments that make them easy to identify.

I wouldn’t care, but none of them ever see the light of day, given that I’m in pre-moderation mode.

    Bibble bobble, rhubarb, custard – must make filtering the spam from the sensible messages an absolute nightmare.
