Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Spammers Making Multiple Attempts to Comment

Some spammers don't understand the concept of comment moderation.  Over the past week, a spammer has tried several times to get a comment posted on one of my blogs.  I kid you not, the first round of attempts numbered seven.  The second round was only four.  Now, it gives me a bit of pleasure thinking of some moronic spammer wasting their time, shaking their head and freaking out because they know they hit the publish button but their comment is not visible.  Frantically, they repeat the process.  Then again and again until finally they collapse in a heaping pile of frustration that their comment has not been published.  If only that were the case.  Sadly, it is likely a bot making comment attempts set up to try a certain number of times then move on to the next blog.  If successful, multiple spam comments will appear on that blog until the blogger notices but these days with so many abandoned blogs, the comments may stand for eternity.  This is all the more reason to keep comment moderation on your blog!
