Ah, guess it had to happen sooner or later: we’ve been hit by a rash of blog spam. I’ve gone ahead and deleted all the current spam, but manually removing posts is not an effective long term solution. So, we’ve had to change our policies here a bit.

I’d like for us to keep allowing unregistered users to post comments, so that hasn’t changed (yet). Instead we’ve added some moderation rules that hopefully will target the spammers. We’ll see how it plays out. In the meantime, if your comment does not show up immediately, please be patient with us.

    WP-Blacklist is working really well on my wordpress blog. I was getting about 100+ spam comments a day before I installed it. Since I installed it Thursday, I’ve hardly gotten any. The only real problem with it is that the moderation panel is buried in the plugins page and not in the regular comment moderation.
