I received my first comment on this blog the other day.
I don't believe I write just to get feedback, so I don't mind if my blog goes unnoticed. It doesn't really bother me. However, getting a comment does kinda let you know that there's someone out there that likes what you're writing. Somebody who can use what you're putting out there.
So, when I saw the number of comments on my most recent entry had increased to one, I was pretty excited. I opened up the entry, and lo and behold...
There was twelve pages of mumbo-jumbo and a dozen links at the bottom. I had been spammed.
So, I enabled comment moderation, and re-published the blog. Lesson learned. I guess CAPTCHAS can't keep the spammers at bay forever...
