Comments

To answer some questions, I don't mind anonymous comments at all if they make sense. But I've been getting a slew of spammy comments on old blog posts, which irritates me. I'll just keep deleting them for now.

Yeah, I get those too. Usually in barely recognizable English trying to get me to click on some bizarre website. Annoying.

That's why I ended up adding the word verification feature after three+ years of blogging without it. I got tired of deleting those comments DAILY, especially the ones that linked back to porn. Eeeew. I had one that was leaving comments every day on old blog posts, and to that person, rather than repeatedly thinking, "No thank you, I don't want to date hot young Asian girls," I just did the word verification thing. Oy.

Go into Dashboard and then settings. You can find the place to moderate comments. I checked off 3 days. This means that if any spammer comments on my old posts, if it's older than 3 days (which it always is) then the comment doesn't get posted but instead comes to my inbox.

(there is a place on Blogger to tick off if you want all comments send to your inbox. I checked off yes because I try and answer all my comments personally instead of publicly on my blog)

When the spam comment comes to your inbox, they give you 3 choices, check reject. DONE!
