Until recently, I could count the number of spam comments this blog had received on one fin.
But at some point in the last few months, while I have been ignoring this blog a little bit, we got about 50 or 60 spam comments that slipped through.
I do not know if that is testimony to the fact that the spammers are getting better at their hacking, or that my blog is finally interesting enough to bother hacking.
Given that I have not posted in months and months, I think the first explanation is more likely.
What is strange, is that 97% of the spam seems to be on one post. The one called Liturgy 1 – Golf.
So maybe spambots just like golf?
I really don’t want to have to set comment moderation, or make people copy stupid verification words, but it looks like that ship might have sailed. If I can’t fix this problem, we might have to do that.
