Comment Spam Deluge
We’ve been receiving a deluge of comment spam recently, and we’re in the process of experimenting with using more aggressive settings on our junk comment filters. If your comment doesn’t appear after you go to post it, please let the author of the post know so it can be fished out of our junk comment bin.
Spam is a technological rat race, and sadly, the bad rats seem to be winning lately. SiliconBeat reports that Russian spammers have attacked the anti-spam company Blue Security to the point where it has been forced to shut down. We beat the Russians in the Cold War; but we’re not faring as well against them in the Spam War.
Anyway, we’re raising our defenses, and we hope that this won’t have effects on legitimate comments. Please let us know if it does.
