Managing SPAM

The amount of SPAM I receive at this blog recently jumped up exponentially.  It is always filtered by the SPAM que, but upwards of 30 or 40 have been appearing daily.   I have made a few changes in commenting in an attempt to manage it.

You must be a registered WordPress user and logged-in in order to comment.  All pingback/ trackbacks have been temporarily disabled.  And two posts – China leads in Medals and Sally Ride Dead at 61 – have had all commenting turned off completely.  I don’t what it was, but those two posts were the worst offenders.

Very few people leave real comments at this blog anyway, but legitimate commenting should not be affected.
