After my post last night, I came back a few minutes later and was quite surprised to see that I’d already got three comments. Not that many people read the blog, so the odds of having three people reading it just at the point the post was published had to be tiny. But I was quite touched at the thought of people being so quick to comment, and looked to see what they had to say.
AND IT WAS BLOODY COMMENT SPAM. Which would have been annoying enough on any post, but on that particular one it was just too much. Fuckwits.
I’ve now discovered that word verification is available on comments, so hopefully that won’t happen again, but unfortunately I can’t find a way to delete existing comments in Blogger. The only option I had was to hide them, which meant that I had to bar any new comments on the post as well.
So, if anyone wanted to comment on that post, I’m sorry you weren’t able to. Blame it on the comment spam.
