We continue to experience a flood of “comment-spam” with multiple links to mostly salacious websites. There are solutions for this and I have been waiting for [past] host to implement one of them. For example, a software plug-in to eliminate the comment-spam would be a good decision, with multiple choices available.
For anyone not familiar with comment-spam, it is directed at the SEOs, not the blog itself. Persons of lesser intelligence and few morals are looking for ways to elevate their rankings with the search engines. In the process of doing this, they are selling their souls to the devil, of course.
While we wait for a solution, the highly tedious and unpleasant chore of deleting the comment-spam one at a time continues. Bathing in disinfectant after dealing with such garbage is highly recommended.
