Sorry my dear readers, I am experiencing a lot of spam lately. Therefore I had to change the settings to “moderating each comment before publishing”…. sigh.

I want to make it as easy as possible for people to leave a comment on my blog. Good people that is.
And I want to make it impossible for bad people to infect my blog.

Unfortunately I cannot find a good Spam-programme on Blogger, so I need to resort to this measure.
As there are friends who want to leave comments without a digital trace. Which means I have to leave comments open to anyone.

Don’t you hate criminals?

    Ugh! I have two different spam guards on my blog, and a few still sneak into my spam area. Yuck. Sometimes real comments find there way in there too. I try to get them out ASAP. Sorry Greetje. This is just the way it is.

      It is a comfort to share this missery with you. As we say in The Netherlands: shared sorrow is hakf a sorrow (literally translated).

    I’m ok with moderated comments. Spammers have nothing to do here!

      But it is nicer when you immediately see your own comment. Perhaps my computer guy can help me.

    You did the absolute right thing. I actually had folks posting article on my site, and when I finally realized, it was because I did not secure the author settings…..xoxo
