Have you ever wonder why I ask for login credentials for comments? Have you wondered why your comment does not immediately show up? The answer is due to spam comments and trackbacks. With junk mail filters getting pretty good, blogs have become the target of spammers. To give you an idea of how bad it has become I have gotten 40 bogus trackbacks since Friday.
With the amount growing steadily I am looking at turning off comments and trackbacks. I would like to know what other think so leave me a comment should I turn them off or leave them on? Or do you have another idea on how to combat the spam.
