Anonymous comments

Ever since I changed the way my comment window shows up, I've gotten tons of anonymous spam comments. They're really annoying. One was a friend so I hate not to allow anonymous comments but I think I'm going to have to go there. I'll be glad when Blogger fixes their glitches as I didn't have that problem with the embedded comment format. I still reject them before they appear but it's a pain to get up everyday and find half a dozen or more spam comments.

Anyone else notice this?


  1. YES!

    All of a sudden I have a gazillion spam comments. i thought it was because I got onto tat-ology from my daughter's computer... a virus? But I have a Mac, so I did not understand how that could happen...

    At any rate, I just changed the comment format, in desperation, thinking it might stop the spam.

    I see I am not the only one.

  2. Blogger thinks I am spam, so I don't get spam comments. I don't allow anonymous comments either, so that may help.

    Blogger, I'm not spam!

  3. I have not received that many spam comments. a few, it takes about 2 weeks to get 15 or so. then I go through them and hit delete.
    other then that, no problems. I just changed to embedded commments, so that I can make replies directly to comments made, instead of a new comment, or sending an email.

  4. That is why I did the word code thing, way too many spam things. Of course it would help if I updated my blog more often than I do. lol. I use an alias for my real name no reason to have no name or anonymous for name. But that is my opinion .

  5. I think its time Blogger got the problems sorted out and had a better way of getting rid of spam.

    I get a few I had a message box in my sidebar and had to remove it as it was only spam comments going in it.

    I think spam is just a way of life and the only way to deal with it is to delete it one day they will get fed up with leaving them.


Emails and comments both are welcome and always read.
