I hate having to do this but today for the first time I turned on comment moderation on Thomas Hawk’s Digital Connection. Even with Blogger’s captcha’s turned on the comment spam was still just getting too bad. Literally hundreds of them a day. Unfortunately I’m not aware of any sort of akismet type tool for Blogger and so this seems like the only solution at this point.
I hate comment moderation and will try to stay on top of moderating comments as quickly as I can. Sorry about the inconvenience on it. Maybe if the comment spam dies down in the next few days or so I can try turning moderation back off.
