Blog spam

Should I just turn comments off on my blog? What are you doing about blog spam? Do you know what blog spam is? If you don’t, and you have a blog, you should!

Here’s an example: I posted an entry a couple of hours ago. I just looked at my blog page, and lo and behold, there was a comment. I don’t get many of those, and I don’t expect many of those, but I got one, so I read it. As I expected, it had a link to some escort website in Georgia. I deleted the comment immediately (thank you blogger.com, for putting that link there).

I think I’m going to do away with comments altogether and disallow them in the settings for my blog. People that need to get hold of me about something in my blog are likely to have my email address, or they’ll know where to find it. Everyone else can bugger off.
