Lately, I’ve been getting some comment spam. It’s been pissing me off, too. I know there are people out there who have blogs and have 80 times more spam than I do, but I still don’t like it. As such, I’ve added a blacklist to comments. If you post a comment with one of the blacklisted words in it, it will go up for comment moderation. It won’t be posted until I accept it.
Also, I have added another required field to the comment section. You have to put the number that is in “17th Degree.” The answer is simply 17. This is a fairly simple attempt that should thwart the simple spam attacks I’m getting.
If anyone has any serious problems making a comment, shoot me an email at admin (at) 17thdegree.com or leave a comment here ( assuming you can )
That is all.
