A Note

Making some changes to this blog in the hopes I can still take legitimate comments under the "Anonymous" category. I have a few friends who do not have blogs who I know like to occasionally leave a comment. Unfortunately, I have been picking up some spam here, even with the comment moderation, so I wanted to let you know I've added the word verification to see if that will help. If it is human beings (sometimes I wonder about this classification lately) who are doing this, then it won't work and I'll have to remove anonymous. I'll try this and see. So, I hope you don't mind the extra step to leave a comment.

We have evidence every day, don't we, that we live in a fallen world. Come, Lord Jesus.

I moderate and still get a few of the spam but you can reject them that way and they never hit the public domain of your blog.

Right, Susan. I like being able to reject, but I don't like reading them. For some reason I get agitated by them. I'll see how the Lord leads. For the longest time, I didn't moderate and never had a problem. Now that I'm moderating it seems like it got worse. Go figure, huh?

So sorry, Maxine, that a few seem to be insistent in being rude. But I do not mind the moderation and I see several bloggers have had to go to it. Ephesians 4:29 for sure!!

Sandra said...

Yes, we live in a fallen world and we that have the Holy Spirit living in us are what keeps the stability that is here on this earth going. Hope your change works. I'd probably get agitated too.

I'm so sorry you're having problems. Hope this works for you!

Denise said...

Sorry you are having trouble with the comments.... I have had very little trouble......... and I do not mind the extra step to talk to you girl!!!

I really don't understand why some people have to leave rude, offensive, or argumentative comments. If you don't like or agree with what the blogger has said, then just go read another blog....there are so many others to choose from. I really don't see that a blog is the place to debate issues!!

Anyhow, I don't mind the extra step, as I would rather you not have to see offensive stuff, and if this will help, that's great.

Love,
Patti

Hi Maxine,
I've always moderated my comments but had to add the verification after getting bad spam. Tonight I got a different commentor that made me a little suspicious. I just rejected. We'll see if it comes around again. Hope not!
Have a great Sunday!
btw, it doesn't bother me to do the verification.

spamming on comments seems to be getting worse here in blogland. sorry you're having to deal with it. hope you're able to feel in control of it soon.

Hey dear friend, came on by to say Hi and to love on you. I put the spam back on mine to cut down on the nonsense I was receiving even though I have comment moderation as well.

Just something we have to deal with at times but that doesn't stop the GOSPEL MESSAGE!!! HALLELUJAH!

Love and hugs!

I'm sorry you are having trouble, Maxine. I think I have the word verification and comment moderation on mine. I don't mind it.
