Battling spam comments
Lately I have been hearing a lot of complaints from one of my friends who is using Blogger‘s service for his blog. He says that he’s been getting a lot of spam comments. I haven’t been using my Blogger account for a long time because I use other software. Anyhow, apparently, Blogger has done something to deal with it and Sean Uy has written about it recently.
In any case, it’s not very difficult. When you log in to Blogger, go to the Dashboard and select which blog’s settings to change. There is a tab for selecting changes in the way your blog would handle comments. Look for this:
Show word verification for comments?
And from there select “Yes.”
Currently, Sean is still experimenting with this and will be monitoring it for the next few weeks.
