Blogging: No more comments

Due to the high level of spam comments I’ve been receiving recently, I’ve decided to close all comments on all previous entries.

I didn’t want to have to do this, but whenever I felt like blogging, I found I had to spend more and more time just cleaning up comment spam (20 contact lenses spam today alone). Easiest solution was just to close commenting. This will probably impact on the “popularity/usefulness” of a few entries (the Mystry of Time And Space game solutions and the Premium rate spam details), but, alas, there’s not much I can do at this point.

When I upgrade to MT 3 (which I still haven’t decided if I’ll do), I’ll probably install MT-Blacklist, but spammers have just taken all the fun out of blogging for me. Sorry.

One Comment

  1. Sorry to hear that, but it’s understandable. I close comments on all entries more than 2 months old, and I have MT-Blacklist enforce moderation for comments on entries that are more than 45 days old.

    I got hit with the contact lens spam too, although MT-Blacklist successfully stopped it all 🙂
