Spam Belongs in a Can, Not in My Comments.

I need some help, users of Blogger!

I get the WORST spam in my comments. I won't even tell you what it is because I swear when I talk about it, more of them come and spam me - I will just say that it has to do with young women of Asian descent scantily (or not) clad. It is driving me absolutely insane.

For a long time, I blogged here and didn't turn on the word verification in the comments because, let's face it, I don't get a ton of comments and word verification is a further deterrent.

But, after dealing with all the garbage I've been finding in my comments, I figured anyone who is truly interested in commenting would put up with the hassle.

And that the spammers would not. WRONG.

No, for some reason, the damn spammers are not only patient with word verification, they are verified blogger users.

So, if anyone out there who reads this has any advice for getting rid of the creepy commenters, please say so in the comments.

I'm begging you!

Eeek! Maybe comment moderation instead, but that seems like a lot of work. Hope you can figure something out!

BTW, I am not Asian nor am I scantily clad while typing this. Just for your peace of mind.

Maybe having "ass" in your title invites them :)

Andrea, the thought had crossed my mind...

I use disqus for my comments and I really like it. You can choose certain words that you typically find in the spam comments and they are automatically held in moderation and not posted. I haven't had any problems since using disqus.
