Jim - 1, Spam Meisters - 0

If there is anything that can take the joy of a blog it's spam. Not in email that I receive but in the things posted in the comments sections of the individual entries.

A few weeks ago I threw the switch that has me approve all comments before they get posted. The result? I can ban the IP addresses of the spammers and zap the messages before they ever get posted. It does take the joy out of seeing your comments posted immediately but hopefully the lack of advertising for Nigerian banks, products to enhance your *ahem* size and other products makes up for it.

I still have the occasional bad day. (100+ spam comments that I have to delete.) The good news is that your enjoyment of the site isn't impacted and that's more than enough cause to celebrate.

Woo hoo!
