As you know, recently I had a rash of spam comments and installed a program to combat them. What I didn’t realize until yesterday was that I installed it incorrectly (misnamed the directory) and I have no idea if any comments could get through. Hopefully I didn’t turn anyone off because I was ignoring their comments, on my end there was nothing in the queue so I didn’t know they were out there. That and factor in I was away for 24 hours.
So if someone out there could leave a comment or two for me to see when I return to check the queue (and also e-mail me when you do so, the address is above), I’d truly appreciate it. I know I have the program installed correctly now (it tells me so on my WordPress “dashboard”), thus it should be just a matter of tweaking the settings and that’s why I need to get a few comments as a check.
My second favor is to read the three-part series where I’m going to talk about economic stimulus tonight through Wednesday night (and if you like it, tell your friends!) This promises to be commentary that inspires thought and discussion the right way, not through overt solicitation. I just need the overt stuff to make sure that my anti-spam program works properly.
Late edit: Elbert told me that the message he got was:
That may be the solution for those of you leaving comments because this particular program uses those aspects to filter out the bot spam.
