As some of you may know, I am running Spam Karma 2 to prevent spam comments flooding my blog. It’s been working great, I only had to delete half a dozen comments since I’ve installed SK2. But things have slightly changed. SK2 is still working fine, but I am sick and tired of deleting hundreds of spam comments each and every day. At the beginning I quickly went through the comments SK2 caught in case it made a mistake, but over the last couple of weeks that has become virtually impossible – try checking some 800 spam comments every day. That’s why I decided to make commenting available only to registered users. I know some people hate registering, and I can understand that, I don’t like it myself, that’s why it took me so long to take that decision. It has one advantage though: there won’t be anyone misusing your name, and confusions such as whether the Chris from Pianocktail not being the same one as the guy from Chris.lu will not happen again. So you gain something as well after all. And, if you’re working on your own computer, you can activate the “remember me” function, so you never have to worry about logging in again.
If you don’t want to fill out the register form yourself, leave a comment and I’ll email you a username and password. (Don’t worry, you can easily change your password afterwards.) Logic and I have never been best friends. :D
I apologize for this inconvenience.
