Blog Comments

THIS IS A POST I DID ON MY MAIN BLOG: Rain's Garden with regards to a new policy on Blog Comments!

Here are a few of the 66 tomatoes that are finally turning red! :) I see salsa in my future... ;)

And my very first sugar you think it'll have enough time to ripen?

Blog Comments:  My friends, I'm sorry to say this, but I have to turn off the "anonymous" comment feature for my blog. I don't know what the heck happened, but I woke up the other morning to over 800 comments (no joke!!!) from "Anonymous"...everything from graphically violent attacks, to bigotry to the likes of the Nigerian Prince scam of the 1990's. I even got comments saying that the Federal Government is suing me for tax evasion lol...

And all throughout the last few days I keep getting hundreds more on various posts on my blogs.

This doesn't worry me at all, I know they are just randomly generated, but it's just annoying, so I'm going back to only allowing comments from people with Google accounts. I know that some of my followers don't have accounts with Google, but I hope you understand. I just don't have the time to moderate comments when I'm getting so many spam ones.

This also applies to my other two blogs: Rain's Thoughts and Rainy Day Cheese Making...both of which I intend to resume after Labour Day as well! :)

If you don't want to open a Gmail account, I totally get that, but if you want to contact me, you can always use the Contact Form on my sidebar! I'm also on Instagram.

Thanks for understanding! :)

Thanks Magic Love Crow! It's just an annoyance, but the problem is now solved! So happy about that! :)

Big fat pain in the bum, eh? I get that. Totally understandable.

Rain said...

Total pain in the butt Ivy :) So far though this option is working so I don't have to moderate comments!

I'm sorry to hear that you went through this, Rain! I get it. I'll be excited to see how your sugar pumpkin progressed. I'm so behind ~ Today is October 10th. I'm not organized enough and I travel too much to deal with comment moderation.
