In the last 2 months, I have seen a huge increase in spam comments. I probably get 5 to 8 per day. They say something random that does not at all pertain to my post and then leaves a link to some spam website.
As of today, I am no longer accepting anonymous comments. This includes people typing in their name when they leave a comment. I have been looking at who leaves comments on my blog and it is mostly people with Google profiles so that should not be a problem.
If you are one of the people who do not have a Google profile or can no longer leave a comment on my blog, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see what I can do.
Thank you for your support. I do not feel comfortable having all of these spam comments being left on my blog which is of course, not spam.
