In which I ask for help


One of my old posts keeps getting Japanese spam from a different commentor every time.

Do any of you know how I can stop this happenning without resorting to banning all comments?
Thanks

There should be a setting which lets you hold comments for moderation before you publish them. That way you can check it's not spam without disabling all comments.

As you are using blogger:
go to Settings; Comments.

Under Comment Moderation (about half way down), you can select whether to moderate comments (i.e. they get emailed to you and you have to check them before publishing them).

Alternatively, you can go to "Word Verification needed for comments" (next option) - this is where you have to type in the random word before you can post a comment. Making this mandatory killed the Russian spam I was getting a while back.

I just wanted to thank you for writing this blog - as someone who'd like to go into Anaesthetics one day, it's very useful to get a personal view with some clinical detail. You're all linked on my blog and stuff :)

Thank you all for your advice, I've made some changes and hopefully, it won't be such a problem in the future
