Well, guess what. I logged in and found another 200-300 comments awaiting moderation on my blog. These were all blog spam to some online poker site. So, I now have to spend some time doing some SQL queries to eliminate all of the cruft from my site. I will also have to turn off comments for good.
This sucks since I really wanted to keep them. There were some good comments posted just last week. I tried just blocking that IP or forcing moderation. No avail. These jerks just kept pumping my site with crap.
So, until I obfuscate comment posts or put a ‘what does this image say’ pic there, no comments. Sorry.
