Perhaps it’s due to the infrequency of my posts of late, but I have recently become besieged by spam comments to several of my posts. Given that this isn’t a widely read blog in the first place, these numbers are getting more and more rampant. Several posts are now receiving more than 30 such comments each per day. The post on Edwin S. Fitzhenry is currently leading, closely followed by Back in the Saddle and the Civil War Cavalry Forum, for those keeping score at home.
I selected comment moderation quite some time ago to keep the comments off the blog, but this currently means that my email inbox is flooding with all of these specious comments. Does anyone out there have any ideas that might help? It’s getting to the point where I don’t log onto the blog daily because I don’t want to deal with the comments.
