I was getting insane amounts of comment and trackback spam. So much so, that it was taking almost an hour a day deleting comments. I didn’t have the time to upgrade my installation of WordPress, so I just took the blog down for the time being.

I finally got around to the upgrade and installed a few anti-spam measures. Hopefully, it’ll take those lousy spammers a lot longer to get through the defenses this time. As you can see, the theme has changed. When I get a chance, I’ll update that, too.

  • Wow…I never realized you were on WordPress. I don’t really understand WordPress. Is it like a blog host like Xanga? Or, do you have to host it on your own servers? And, when another friend had a blog via WordPress and required a login to comment, neither my WordPress lD nor my ID for his personal site worked. It really irks me that way. How did you get spammers to your blog before? How could they do that? What’s the point?
