The saying goes something like, "you never know what it is like until you walk in somebody else's footsteps."
I have never wanted to put a word verification system on my blog. Of course I still leave comments on other people's blogs who have it but it does take a while.
What is the need I thought.
Yesterday my blog was literally attacked in the most vicious and horrible way. My email inbox was pinging like a heart monitor and in the space of a few hours over 10,000 spam comments were piled onto my blog. I have so loved being able to email the lovely people who have left comments on my blog personally but now my inbox is absolutely jammed with all those spam comments. The " Sporty One " who is usually patient beyond belief will not be happy when he sees it. That is going to take me hours to delete and then afterwards empty the trash bin!!!!
I started last night and in my frustration it looks like I have managed to delete the wonderful comments left all through December instead of just the spam ones!
I have of course put on word verification now and hope this will stop anymore getting through.
I could cry !!!!
