I turned off my comments a couple of weeks ago since some people were having problems with the word verification. I thought I'd experiment and see what happens.
I've now had several spam comments left on random posts written back in 2010.
Thankfully, these are Anonymous comments so they aren't posting and I just receive notification in my email. But, it's got me wondering how best to screen this unwanted traffic toward my blog. Is the only best way to do it via the word verification when leaving comments? Anyone know?
While I love traffic here on my blog, I'd really rather not attract any 'ol Tom, Dick or Harry to my little corner of Blogville.
