Message from me regarding Spams lately!

I beefed up the security again on both of my blogs. Everyone will have to use the "word verification" which is a pain and also I have to approve all comments before they are posted due to all this spam that came across both my blogs recently. I spent over an hour deleting and reporting spam on many posts this morning. All were about "viagra". Everything should be fine now.

You will not be able to see your comment right after you typed it because they have to email me first to be approved so it will be posted after that.

What a pain in the neck. This all happened because people were complaining about having to deal with the word verification feature and also they thought their comments were not being posted because they did not see it immediately so I removed all of those features and guess what happened???? Tons of spam! So security is back on again.

Hugs, Rose


  1. I don't do the word verification but just have to approve comments before they are shown. They spam does go to a spam folder and I just delete it. The work verification seemed to upset a lot of people so I started doing it that way. Still a lot get confused and think their comment didn't post since it doesn't show up right away. Those spammers are a bother for sure.

  2. I don't blame you, Rose, I've got word verification up myself. One day, I had to delete 500 spammy comments from a blog so that was me on W.V.

  3. I have had problems as well but things have gone smoothly lately. Hope everything works out.


  4. That would really take much of your time. I agree! It’s a pain in the back. I wish your problem would resolve soon.
