Comment verification

I am sorry to say I have had to enable comment verification because of some spammer taking over with comments written with oriental characters. Because I have the comments come to my email, I am aware which ones were affected and have been able to delete the comment.

I enabled comment moderation for over 14 days, but if the spammer continues with current posts, then I will have to put that on for all new posts, too.

 Sorry to have to put you through extra hoops. Sometimes I find that comment verification doesn't work the first time you try. Do continue to leave appropriate comments, though, I do appreciate them. If it doesn't work first time just try again. Sometimes it takes me 3 goes on some blogs.

And to leave with good news. The college asked for a photo of Ancient and Wise Dragon to put on the leaflet for the Reading Arts week!

I've had those as well - and I'm afraid they keep coming back, although with a different name.

Just recently I've had comments in English with a vague phrase, recommending links which appear to be German florists!

I always moderate comments - it doesn't take long and better safe than sorry!

I had to add comment verification to mine as well for all new comments. It was obvious that there were links embedded in the oriental characters.
