I already knew I wasn't too fond of the canned meat. The live ones are putting themselves even lower than that on my scale of liking. In other words, All Booked Up has been discovered by the spammers. So far, it's not too bad, but I am contemplating deleting one or two posts that are particular favorite targets, and they've started hitting the rest of the blog as well.

My apologies if you see something inappropriate in the comments. I'm deleting the stuff as fast as I get notified about it. I don't want to go to moderated comments though, much less stop all comments, as they're part of what makes the blog so much fun for me.

I hate Spam. I got it three times this week, Viagara garbage. I went back to using Word Verification temporarily on my posts. Some months ago everyone was getting spammed (I got it eleven times in one day) and I did it then until it passed and it seemed to work. Hopefully it will this time too.

Hi :)
I'm sorry you are getting spammed!
I don't mind moderated comments, a lot of Blogs have them. Or word verification, lots of Blogs have 'em too and I'm used to them.
Love & Best Wishes,

We had a little burst of spam, too, a while back. A week of word verification solved the problem (so far). And nobody in our little corner of the blogosphere seemed to mind.

I have word verification off at the moment, and so far have only had a couple of spam comments so will leave it off, but if it suddenly gets too much I will put it back on.

I think that in your settings there is an option to require comment moderation on older posts, which may be an option if you don't want to actually delete your posts.
