Dag Gone Spammers

I'm seeing everyone is having these spammer issues.

In the 10 minutes it took me to write that last post, I got slammed again. Only this time they didn't hit my old posts. They hit yesterdays. And they don't use an URL. Just that stupid phoney email. The other kicker is they use normal names. Today it was Pete. Last night it was Missy and Ben.

I'm getting used to the usuals: enhanc*ment dr*ugs, vi*gr*, ect. But these sick Mo Fo's that are hitting me with r*pe pictures and such.......they need to die. Period. They make me sick. The fact that they are putting that shit on MY BLOG just makes me crazy. But, it seems like everytime we come up with a way to stop them they just get more creative. Damn them anyway.

So, the point here is to just vent a bit. And to let you know that closing off old comments doesn't keep the bastards out. So I guess I'll just keep deleting and remind you that I have no control over that crap. (I realize you all know that, I just needed to write it out loud.)

Either I'm lucky or just unloved. I have no blog spammers.

Just get the normal email spammers but Yahoo does a good job of weeding them out so I don't have to even get them.

I don't know for sure, but think blogspot has something there that keeps it from hittin' ya'll. I never had any at that site.

I am worried about leaving blogger... I don't have the spam issues y'all have.

I run MT on my own computer.
I had no spam until I had readers.
I run a plug-in for MT called MT Blacklist.
I works ... well.
Some days I do get the same spam on 10+ posts.
But I do go back and close comments on old posts.

I would like to get that "enter the word from the image" thing working, but my guru friend who setup my stuff tells me it is a pain to keep working. Bummer.

I do leave one of my first "posts" open, partially to catch spammers. Pretty much anyone who is going to respond to my "Hey You-" post is a spammer.
