I HATE SPAM!!!

It all started a month ago when I received my first 'lot' of spam comments. As if receiving a shit load of spam emails everyday isn't bad enough. Now, these low life imbeciles have been leaving spam on my blog every damn day. It's come to a point where I'm extremely pissed off!

As it is, I don't get a whole lot of comments on my blog. I have the readership but getting more than 10 comments in one post from 10 different individuals is something I crave for. But I think I would have a better chance at winning the lottery...

As I was saying, I check my comments because I try my best to reply to all of them. I think I've done a good job so far. But it gets sickening when I get an average of 5 to 10 spam comments in a day. Deleting them at first was alright. Now, it's a pain in the ass to do it every damn day!

Would you guys understand if I implemented one of the following methods (below) on my blog?
  • Disallow anonymous posting. Meaning, you'll need to sign in to leave a comment.
  • Use CAPTCHAs and other methods to prevent automated comment spamming.
  • Turn on comment moderation.
Ladies and gentlemen, do let me know what you think I should do. If this goes on another week, I might just lose my freaking mind!

  2. I'd completely understand if you implemented all that. I think most readers have come to expect those filters to be in place anyway.

  11. Captcha is difficult to understand most of the time, the one you have now seems to be ok, the easiest and hassle free one should be the one where they ask the commenter to add 4+1 and the correct answer verifies it as not spam.
