Annoying?


spam

Greetings fellow bloggers. I apologize for having to change the settings on this site by requiring folks to type in a verification code.

I have been getting spammed by some idiot called Anonymous to the point where I cannot operate the blog with the prior settings. I am getting spammed as much as 100 times per day.

Does anyone have a better setting? A solution? Is the code abrasive? I would appreciate any input I receive. Thank you!

  1. I think there is a setting that disallows Anonymous comments.

    2. JJ: Look under 'settings' scroll down to 'comments'.. ( on left side)after u click on 'comments' it opens up another page.. u can choose to have comments only from Bloggers ...

    3. KBF: Here are my choices:

      Anyone - includes Anonymous Users
      Registered User - includes OpenID
      User with Google Accounts
      Only members of this blog

      I just set it to "Only members of this blog." Will that prevent new members from joining my blog?

  2. I had a similar problem, so I made it so only people with Google accounts could comment.

    1. Gabriel: I tried that, but my followers were telling me it was by
      "invitation only." Maybe I misunderstood. I'll check it out. Thanks.

  3. I set comments to no annynonomous allowed. Cost me some comments from friends, but after several weeks I now allow Annon. and get only 2 or 3 spams a day. Hopefully they will leave me alone for awhile.

  4. I disabled anon comment feature because of too much spam.

  5. Set to no anonymous comments and that should eliminate most of them.
