My other blog is experiencing what feels like a deluge of comment spam. All that I can say is thank goodness for Askimet. And that is with visitors having to subscribe in order to post comments. It seems that a way has been found around that. I did have a spurious user with obdolbin.com as their website address and got rid of them but the flow still continues. Blogger does seem to have a way around this: entering the letters from an image to stop bots from doing their thing. Maybe we’ll see WordPress doing the same?
Update: It seems that the torrent has now slowed to a trickle. Maybe getting rid of the spurious user has worked after all and it just took a while for the effect to kick in.
