Even though I added security years ago to have a word typed in - to eliminate the automated spam - I am suddenly and consistently getting massive amounts of spam again.
I spend time every day, deleting these posts and banning the URLs, and I’m just plain tired of wasting my time because of these spammers.
So, I have gone through my posting histories and disabled new comments on all previous posts. If you are new to the blog and browse through previous posts, you will need to come back to the current post to leave any comments. It is rare to get spam on the current entry (I’m not sure why), but if that changes now because they can’t leave comments anywhere else, I may turn off comments on the current post (after a period of time).
Of course, you can reach me through Ravelry (I’m knittinginpublic) or email directly (if you’re a friend) if you can’t leave a comment.
