11/16/2004: "Removing Spam from my comments"technorati tags: pissed off!
So, my comments get spammed every now and again, I go through and delete stuff and add IPs to my banned list, it hasn't been that big of a deal. On Saturday and Sunday I got hit with over 200 long spam entries interspersed throughout my entire blog, using different IPs, so I had to go through individually, every single entry, delete them out, and add the various IPs to my banned list.
It took over 3 hours. :plain:
Now, you're probably thinking it's insane for an incredibly busy person to waste 3 hours of her life deleting spam out of old blog entries...but for me it's a matter of principle. It pisses me off to let any company advance their damn Texas Hold-em poker or ephedrine site by abusing my site and server space. I want to spit in the face of any lame company that gets the help of a spammer as well. ROT IN HELL I SAY!
I've considered adding the feature where you have to identify a hazy letter or number before you can leave a comment, but those things drive me crazy. Any other suggestions?

On another note, when I tried to delete the hundreds of comment spams from my inbox, I accidentally deleted *everything*, my entire inbox (I'm tired ok?). So, if you've sent me an email to business email recently, I probably didn't get it. Sorry.
