I'm starting to get hit by random spambots posting comments on ancient posts.
Not sure what to do. I only get a fraction of the visits that most of you get, so I'm guessing you get more of this than I do. How do you handle it? Do I need to start that distorted word verification thing?
I'd rather not go as far as comment moderation. To me, that always screams censorship and borderline paranoia. I don't care what real, live, breathing and thinking sentient beings put in the comments.
But when I get some anonymous comment on a post I published 18 months ago that includes a link to a Volvo dealership or a discount warehouse, I'd really like to stop that without inconveniencing my handful of loyal visitors.
So give me your thoughts. What would be the least obnoxious way for me to stop the spam without discouraging comments?
I'm open to suggestions. But, I AM the Decider!
