Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

I don't know about everyone else, but I assume if it's happening to me then I'm probably not the only one. Once again I've been “comment spammed” with a bunch of garbage resembling html and links to god knows what.

Is there something that can be done about this?  I'd prefer not to turn off comments altogether (if that's even possible), but apparently allowing “anyone” to post “anything” in comments isn't such a great choice either.

Anyone else have any thoughts on the matter?

i've had the same problem in the last few weeks... i end up with a few comment spams that link to hundreds of sites of whatever it is they are linking too...

i know there's some really good ways of dealing with this, but most of it involves having the source code to .Text and recompoiling it with some sort of text-image in it, that a human must verify when entering.

i haven't had time to do anything about this on my site, yet.
