I Need Your Advice


Until recently, the amount of spam that was being posted in the comments section here and on my other blogs has been minimal and easily dealt with.

About a month ago, however, it picked up significantly and is a multiple daily issue on each of the blogs I post.

I have always made posting comments as easy as possible, refraining from making anyone enter their name and email address (though I appreciate the fact that almost everyone does) so I know who is posting - or that other dastardly method ... the dreaded captcha! Personally I hate making comments on blogs which use captcha and it is almost entirely unusable on a cell phone.

The final option would be to moderate comments, and at the moment, if I decide to change the way comments are handled here, that would most likely be the way I initially go.

But before I do anything, I would like to hear your thoughts - ironically, in the comments section below.

What do you think? Have you any other suggestions for me?
