Good grief. It’s amazing how fast you get buried in comment and trackback Spam. I had a tough week last week, so I hadn’t posted much or reviewed comments. This weekend, when I had some time to pay attention to my blog, I found that I had hundreds of spam comments and trackbacks.
I know. “Quit your complaining, Pete. That’s life. We all deal with that crap.”
Well, I hadn’t realized just how inundating it can be. So:
1. I turned on Akismet spam filtering.
2. I closed older posts to new comments.
While I was at it, I enabled Gravatars. Woot!
