July 03 | Comment Spam Update
I happened to hop online just as the spammer was inundating the site with some spamming software. I know this because comments were being posted faster than I could delete them.
I have gotten spam comments here before, but nothing of this magnitude.
I changed a few things to the site to help prevent this in the future. Here are some changes you may notice:
The comment link now points to the individual entry page instead of popping up in a new screen.
Also, the comments no longer link to a commenter's website. In fact, i removed the website field from the comments entirely. Since I and Damon are the only ones who have used this, this won't be that big of a change.
Email addresses are still required in case i need to get ahold of a particular commenter, but they will never be displayed on the website to protect everyone's privacy.
I apologize if anyone has seen any of these disturbing spam comments. I will continue to do what I can to keep them at bay.
please note: the dates for all comments posted before january 8, 2004 are incorrect.Comments
