Lack of activity here on the main herder page certainly doesn't reflect a lack in the individual blogs. Unfortunately, spammers aren't slacking off either, including a few less than savory spams I found on misc. this morning.

Let's just say, I don't think the spammers were feminists.

In any case, this is something to pay attention to on all WordHerder blogs. You might want to scan your recent comments and *certainly* delete the offending spam - we don't want to encourage spammers by giving them a free forum. It's a pain, but an unfortunate fact of online communities is that they require moderation.

By the way - the MT edit page lists the five most recent comments - but is there a way to list *all* comments in order to track down old spam that slipped past (without going through every individual post looking for it)?

I'm sure some of you have already seen this, but:


I've yet to implement, but if/when the spamming gets just a little worse I guess I'll have to.

I did see that, but thanks for posting the link for us Matt.

Just haven't had time to review it in detail ... hopefully in the next few weeks.

I'm not sure if it is a coincidence or not, but my email spam has gotten *terrible* lately as well. Really getting tired of it.
