Asian Spam Update

You may recall my attempt to reach out to the Asian Spammer community, in an attempt to understand their motivations and desires. Well, there's some news on that front. In the past few days, I've gotten four or five e-mail notifications that there were new Asian spam comments on my various recent posts, but when going to delete them, I find no such comments. So apparently Blogger is cracking down, which is fantastic.

As to the spammers: sorry guys. I've got no control over this one. Sayonara.

Blogger put in a comments tab in the settings for each blog. Within that is published, awaiting moderation, and spam, making comments run more like gmail. I find I can happily leave the spam stewing there for a week or so, then go and delete 'em all at once with a very satisfying crunch. ;)

Thanks, Shelly! I don't know that I ever would have noticed that tab otherwise.
