Spammers, you are very lame, indeed.

It's just a little irritation that some spammers from China (or Taiwan or somewhere similar) keep leaving junk messages in the comments box. I think I can speak for Tyler when I say that neither of us are interested in your scandalous pr0n sites.

It seems apparent that the captcha thing is not effectively preventing the spam from posting. Therefore, comment moderation is on. Please don't let that deter you from commenting on any of the posts you see here.

I know—my friends are telling me to abandon Blogger and go to WordPress. Maybe one of these days, I'll do it.

Does this thing have a whitelist feature, where you can let certain (known non-spammer) people post comments without moderation? I read another blog where the author has that set up, but it isn't on Blogger/Blogspot, so I don't know if you can do that here. Just something to look into.

Hi, John,

That's why I mentioned "WordPress". That will allow whitelist features.

It's a pain, but I'm too lazy to think of moving everything over at this point. :P
