I posted August 2 I had to moderate comments, i.e., force people to sign in, due to a spike in spam comments I was receiving – 500 to 1,000 a day.
Behind the scenes my server and moreso my kind and patient friend Tim from ProLifeBLogs.com have been working to upgrade my site with software and stopgaps to halt the spam. (One interesting find: 155,000 spam comments my software had automatically saved as “junk” of which I was unaware. No wonder things were bogging down a bit.)
Tim completed the additions and changes last night, so I have dumped that aggravating authentication process once again, which kept many willing commenters off due to its own glitches.
All can once again post freely. Thanks for your patience.
