This blog is too small to be this much work. I’m considering closing comments altogether or incorporating Facebook comments after clearing out nearly 8,000 spam comments posted after I upgraded my WordPress installation and Akismet somehow crapped out, alongside Disqus.
That would explain the random dDOS attacks on this blog that happen when I post anything new, too. Disqus is a great service but I’m not thrilled with how this all happened, or what a challenge moderating them was.
On the plus side, there have been some outstanding comments posted here, well worth taking the time to read. So I’m torn.
Talk me down or talk me into it. I’ll leave comments open on this one.
- Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald, and the NSA
- Monarch Cluster
