Having recently re-designed this blog and converted it to WordPress, I knew it was only a matter of time before I would be bombarded with comment spam. The good news is that it’s a predictable problem and there are solutions out there to help deal with this.
Without going into details, and thereby not giving the comment spammers any hints on how I’m blocking them, I’ve made some backend modifications to handle this issue. I believe that all the comment spam you might have recently seen has been removed. And as far as I can tell from monitoring the changes over the last few days, you shouldn’t see any more comment spam here again.
