Not SO Good News

I continue to get spam on my blog. I do moderate each comment that comes in and I thank you all for leaving comments on my post, they are very much appreciated.

Many of the spam posts have been about links to get viagra and mortgage loans. But the last one I got actually read "click on this link or die." After receiving that one I decided it was time to add the security word thing. I am sorry you will have to have one more step to posting a comment but it isn't that long of a scrambled letter thing. I use it on so many other blogs I leave comments on and I really don't mind it and of course I understand why it needs to be on a blog. What I don't understand is, do these people really think that I would buy anything from them that is presented in such a sneaky way? It even turns me off from the company that they are promoting. Anyway, as soon as I figure out how to add that security thing you will need to just type in the letters you see on the screen and then post your comment.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

No inconvenience at all - I use this too. Some people have too much time on their hands if there posting all these junk comments. Jaqui x
