Comments and Comment Spam

In the recent past a couple comments posted to this site have been incorrectly flagged as spam. This means I actually have to log into the WordPress admin console to even know they exist and then to release them. I had been considering turning off the spam filter since I hadn’t received any real spam. Well, that changed this weekend. There were a couple dozen spam messages caught over this weekend. So the spam filter stays on and I’ll have to start checking the console regularly to process the spam. All in all, not a lot of work (yet) but still a hassle that could delay comments appearing.

I’ll still try to tweak things, but my apologies in advance if there’s a delay in seeing your comments, or the reverse, if a bunch of spam gets through.
