I keep getting comments like this one:

Quote:
Aω, thіs was an ехtremely nice post. Spenԁing somе time and actuаl еffort to crеatе a top notch article… but ωhat can I say… І put thіngs off a whole lot аnd dоn't manage to get anything done. Also visit my webpage. . .


I'd like to know how to stop getting this type of comment. At least this one made some sort of sense. Most don't. Any ideas how to stop getting these in blogger?

P.S. I haven't blogged since June, so if you used to read my blog, come visit. I'm starting up again. Sherril's Sewing Saga

Sherril, I'm getting absolutely pummeled by such comments. I don't know how to stop them, but I have it set so that comments on posts older than 30 days are automatically moderated. To be honest, blogger catches almost all of them and the few that slip through are generally on older posts.

But it is very annoying.

Thank you so much Sharon. I think I've got it fixed with your same solution.

They are very annoying but luckily I get only a few - all for the same blog post as well which was in 2011 - quite strange really.

I turned off anonymous comments because I was getting a few of these. It wasn't such an issue for me, as Blogger nearly always correctly identified them as spam rather than publishing them. Since I turned off anonymous comments I haven't had any.

I think that it's important to moderate comments. that way you can mark them as spam before they get published. I often get comments that are meant to drive business to commercial Judaica sites. There is often a link embedded in the comment. I just mark them all as spam.
