WARNING HERE COMES A RANT!!!!
Now I am normally fairly restrained but those that know me, know if wound up I let fly.
What is it with these low life, spineless, complete wastes of space. Not content with being too fat to get off their back sides and do something useful, they sit and write piles of steaming crap, and cause others offence by sending it. Despite the spam blocker on Bloggers best effort in the last week 204 piles of crap have had to be self erased. It has caught more than that itself and in total I have received over 500 spam comments in a week.
Now don't get me wrong I expect the odd bit of spam, and can normally accept its part of life, unwanted like a kick in the bollocks but still happens now and again, and I deal with it.
I really didn't want to up the spam blocking harshly on the blog because I always wanted anyone to comment, freely and sensibly. Which ordinarily they do, however, I had 7 spam comments on eating placenta, 16 on how to get Viagra and a whole host of other crap tonight and as it seems constant at the moment, so I have turned off the ability to comment anonymously and shortened the post self moderation time. For this I apologise but I needed to do something.
I have not turned on word verification yet as this is a very annoying feature and as I previously said can often present unreadable script. I apologise for this move but doubt I would be allowed to run the streets with an AK47 shooting spammers as should be my right, after all the best way of dealing with vermin is eradication.
Right that's the rant over and done with for now.
