Assaulted by Spam

Well folks, I've always hated those stupid things where you read warped letters and have to verify that you are human by telling the web page what letters you see, but it seems that I have no choice. Some asshat keeps posting dozens of spam links in comments to my posts and so it seems that the only way to limit this is to require posters to jump through hoops.
I just wanted to let y'all know WHY I was going to enable the feature and let you know that I regret having to do it. I hope that you will still take the time to make comments, because that really is what makes this all worth the while to me . . .


  1. Kim,
    It only takes one and we will understand. It is a sad world though.

  2. Hi Kim,
    You have my sympathy! I had a similar problem with one of my sites some time ago. Very, very annoying. :(

    I've not looked on here for a while. It's lovely to see that you're still blogging. :)

  3. Kim -

    I've been able to avoid doing that so far on my blog. But the minute I start getting volume *and* being attacked by spambots, I'll be forced to do the same.


  4. I don't have the volume for spam yet. Not even Spam lite.

  6. i am soooo sorry to hear of this abuse. no one should have to put up with that.
    to bad everyone doesn't treat others as if they were personal friends and close family that is, just treating everyone as they wish to be treated. *sigh*
    ( had to correct the spelling hence the delete and repost)

  7. Kim,
    Keep on blogging and we will keep on reading. I suspect that the spammer may have been jealouse either of your fine looks and wardrobe or of that classic Mustang.
