The spam situation is getting ridiculous, 195 deleted this morning. I don't want to disable the 'Anonymous' option, because that will also disable the 'Name' option, which has been working very well, so I am trying the 'Word Verification' route. You will see this at the bottom when you comment. Please give it a go. Hopefully this tactic will baffle the computer generated spam, and they won't be able to get through.
Two people have told me that they have been unable to comment. I am not sure what has caused that blip. I use two computers, mainly the small netbook which is Windows 7, and the big one which is still on XP but no longer receives updates. I can post on both of these.
I will only use the netbook for posting for a while, and see if that makes a difference. The Big Dell is idea for watching catchup tv, yooootooob, and anything else I want to check.
Thank you for your patience. ilona
PS. Maybe I haven't explained this clearly.
You will NOT get the Verification request, tick the box to Prove you are not a robot, because Blogger knows you are not a robot, because you have an account, and your name comes up in blue.
Only people without an account, who put their name in the drop down box, and the odd genuine reader who forgets or doesn't know to put their name in the box, will get the Prove you are not a robot thingy.
The computer generated spam which is sent out in their thousands, will not be able to tick the not a robot box.
What a lovely surprise!
