The SPAMmers made me do it!

 11 Mar 2009 10:59:46 pm

I know Iím way past due on posting, Iíve been spending a good deal of time preparing for E14 (and hopefully when the time is right some E14 content to post)!

Despite the CAPTCHA I put in place nearly a year ago Iíve had a good deal of ongoing comment SPAM on the blog. I donít understand why someone would repeatedly lurk on my blog, often for an hour or more, posting their comment SPAM. Especially after they see all their comments suddenly disappear an hour later when I execute a quick SQL one-liner wiping out the nuisance. Youíd think after the first dozen or so times they would figure it out and stop wasting their time. To put an end to this Iíve started moderating all comment posts, so nothing will appear until approved.

Thanks for your patronage,

I didn\'t know where to post this and noticed you are moderating everything now so I guess this is fine. I was just wondering if you could share some of your experiences during the Exchange Master program. I am in the process of trying to convince my company that the investment in time and money is worth it. I would appreciate any helpful information in this regard and any suggestions you might have. Thanks and I enjoy reading your blog.

Thanks for the post!

The Master program (or \"Exchange Ranger\" as it was called when I went through) was one of the best and most challenging programs that I\'ve been through. I\'ll consider a \"full\" post, but for now here is some good information you can take back to your management to help build your case:
