When I first put up this weblog I decided to leave it completely open to commenters (you don’t even have to type in a valid email address) and see how long it would take for the first comment spam to arrive.
Well the answer is a lot quicker than I thought. When I logged in today there were two spam comments, one caught by WordPress, the other getting through. So it seems that even blogs that are read by barely a handful of people are worthy targets for the spambots these days.
Ah well, if it gets any worse I’ll start putting up more defenses. But for now, a few spams here and there won’t hurt too much.
