BECAUSE MY SPAM burden currently runs above 300 different spammers a day, I am throttling back this blog. More than 500 different spams hit this blog every day and Six Apart keeps most of them at bay. However, some sort of pernicious spamming has circumvented most of the server's filters. I have to deal with hundreds of unwanted spammers and I don't have the time to give to that battle. I've started moderating all comments but that means paging through up to 10 pages of spams to find a real comment. Each page holds 25 requests for moderation.
I've blocked HTML from posts, manually blocked more than 1000 different IP addresses and forced commentors to leave behind an email address (which can be spoofed). I don't have the time to continue my anti-spam tactics so I'll be throttling back this blog presence.
I'm off to podcasting.ie as my primary blog.
