Change in Comments

I recently started dealing with about 1,000 spam comments a day. It’s a nuisance. And, more to the point, takes time that I would very much rather spend researching and writing.

That’s why I’ve made minor changes in how A Catholic Citizen in America’s software handles comments.

Minor at my end, that is.

If you leave a comment — thank you! — you won’t see it immediately. Among other things, I’ve arranged for all comments to be manually approved. That may be frustrating for you, and a little more work for me. But if it reduces the flow of spam, it’ll be worth it: from my viewpoint.

Changes I made today are not set in stone. I’ve started a ‘how to deal with spam’ file, and am ascending a learning curve on that topic.

Thanks for stopping by, and now I’ll get back to work.
