Fighting Spam & Viruses
I have received questionable comments to two of my recent posts. The comment simply says "Click here and here". Both of the words, "here" are links and send you to a window suggesting you run a scan to protect your computer. Something similar happened to me a few months ago that involved code embedded in an ActiveX bar. After a few days of trying to delete that virus myself, I finally resorted to having Symantec take control of my computer to clean it. Because of this, comment moderation for Cultivating Paradise has now been enabled. It was either that or enabling word verification - and many garden bloggers have stated their dislike of word verification. I'd love any advise from other bloggers regarding spam, etc on your blog.
