Spam, spam, spam, spam

Folks trying to sell all manner of things on the Internet post their messages on blogs like this along with URL’s to boost their search engine page rankings. I’ve had over 32,000 of these spam comments since the blog started. If it were not for a third-party spam filter, this blog would be unmanageable.

While the filter is 99.7% accurate, it sometimes makes mistakes and puts your legitimate comments in the spam bucket. This has happened 24 times in the past month.

Spam filtering has nothing to do with moderation, and it’s not something I can configure or tweak. I don’t know anything you can do to reduce the chance you end up in the spam bucket either. I review all the spams and eventually your message will appear.
