Content Moderation – 2338 comments awaitng moderation #&^)@&!!! and 80+ comments that made it through!

I’ve got 3 (or is it 4?) blogs. This one, being the newer one, is the best at stopping comment spam. On the others, I haven’t upgraded to the most recent version of WordPress and the spamming seems to be rising exponentially.

I guess I need to move that upgrade up on my “to do” list.

2338 comments since February 2, the last day I posted to Haw Creek Out ‘n About is outrageous!

It’s totally not worth the effort to try to see if there are any valid comments in there. There probably aren’t any, but I do hate to dump legitimate comments.

However, I’m NOT going to try to wade through that volume of trash!

Comment spam sucks!

And, then, after I get the comments awaiting moderation dumped, I discover over 80 spam comments that had made it through without moderation. They are now gone!

Comment spam sucks!
