Lack of Spam....

Hey everybuddy, Like I told you on yesterday's blog, my mom had some major "Down Time" on Sunday while she waited for her Furend to come visit... sooooo I had her look at my Blog Comment Stats. As a result... I have had her take Comment Moderation off my blog. Here is what she found out.

On 7/22/10 I did have one of those Japanese spammy thingys.

BUTT since then... I have put up 88 posts with a total of.... 2,299 Comments (As of Sunday Oct. 17th.) That is an AVERAGE of 26 comments per post
AND NOT ONCE SINGLE SPAM THINGY OR BAD COMMENT THINGY IN THE WHOLE.... 2,299 .
I was kinda MIFFED about her taking the Comment Moderation thingy OFF beclaws... I really LIKED the idea of seeing all the comments... speedy quick without going to my actual Blog Post to look....
BUTTTTTT then my mom taught me this really grrrrreat trick that I didn't know about (beclaws she doesn't tell me stuffs like she SHOULD).
If you go to Dashboard and then down to the thingy called COMMENTS and just click on that.... POOOOOOOF... all (and I do mean ALL) of the comments EVER left on your bloggy will be there for you to see. The Last One Left will be the FURST one you see. ....... AND... GUESS what ELSE.... IF there does happen to be a comment that You DON'T like... you can go over to the Right side and Click it as SPAM. THEN.. POOF ... it will be GONE!!! EASY PEASY.
Now you won't even have to wait for ME to get around to Moderating my comments. You will be able to see what others (UNLESS you were Furst at Wally World) have had to say. I am LOVIN' this. Faster and Easier for YOU.
and you know how much Y O U really mean to me !!!!

PeeS... My mom says to tell you that... of the OVER 8,600 comments that I have had since the very furst day I blogged... I have ONLY EVER had FOUR(4) spams and one questionable comment!!! Pretty darned good odds... I (Frankie Furter) think. Don't you???

Hehehehe...okays, I dat was fun!
Sees, spam ain't a big thing cuz you can delete it if you do get it. You may want to add da no comment thingy from anonymous too...but dats just MY opinion!
I likes to read eveybuddies commnets so dis makes me happy.

Oh, this is about spam, I thought it was going to be about SPAM - that canned meat my grandma always talks about ...

I am glad you took off comment moderation. It is so much fun to read other comments - and I hate to miss anything!

Your pal, Pip

That is all most interesting, Frankie. Blog Mom has gotten spam comments on other blogs she's had in the past, but not mine so far. She found the worst were on the Wordpress platform, but she doesn't have any idea why. She has moderation enabled but only for comments on old posts. Still hasn't had to use it, though.

lotsa licks, Lola

Woof! Woof! Blogger made some changes this year in regards to not so nice messages ... n it works especially if you have the verification word (particularly if you allow anonymous (or type their own name) to make comments on your blog - I just have one blog dog friend that does this cause their blog platform is not listed). By doing the verification word also allows us not to moderate comments (we do get an email copy too). We've been lucky no spammers. We only got 2 not so nice messages since we started n they made a comment on an older post. Blogger is sure making great changes (It's Google). Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Ruby and Penny said...

Morning Frankie
We have never used the word verification on our blog comments. Of the over 4000 comments on our blog, no spam. (touch wood - I'm touching Penny's head, He He)
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - thanks for the heads up on the comment button.

We're assuming that you aren't counting Puddles comments as spam...

S P A M.......WHERE IS DA MEAT? HUNGRY.....WHERE'S DA SPAM? HUNGRY....HUNGRY.....HUNGRY!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Great news. We have had a lot less of those foreign language comments too. But we were attributing it to the suggestion you gave us about putting moderation on comments older than a certain number of days. We have it set for comments older than five days. It seems like things slowed down after that. Thanks for the idea.

Keep us posted on how it goes! I don't moderate or have the wordy thingy (I don't think I do at least!) and have only had one spam comment but I don't have nearly as many comments as you do!!

K9friend said...

Sounds good to me! It's amazing how many little tricks there are to Blogger. Sometimes I stumble into them and sometimes wise bloggers like you update me!

Oskar said...

We have always had really good luck without having any word verification or comment modification. Did you know that you can have every comment left on your blog e-mailed to you? That's what we do so we get to see them right away.

It's a setting you can set up in Blogger!

pee s -- oh yeah, and oskar is so right! i have that setting turned on, too, so all of the comments come to my email!

Zona said...

An auction is a great idea! Though I'm not quite sure I'm advanced enough to coordinate that. Maybe I'll ask the pros - JD and Max!!

sprinkles said...

That's interesting about the comments. I knew you could moderate them from your dashboard because I do that a lot but I didn't know you could read all the ones you've ever had.

Twix said...

Frankie, after your and Puddles post the other day, I took off my word verification....did you notice? Anyway, we have had at least 10 spam comments since then. I did what OP Pack did and turned moderation on for comments older than 5 days. Most (not all) of the spam gets pulled out by the spam filter though. Why do the spammers like me and Bunny so much?
Thanks for being Mr. Informative!

The Teacher's Pets said...

Hi Frankie....Sorry it has been soooo long since I have visited butt my mom has been having some tuff times: furst, two of her doggy clients died of old age last week and second, we are going to lose our weekly walks with our puggie furiends, Ace and Fenway, beclaws of green papers and third, she's been annoyed with Blogger and that's where you come in! Thank goodness you and Puddles wrote that post about commenting, etc, because my mom wondered about the proper way to respond when awards are given (she thinks the "rules" are tooo long) and she wondered how you 2 get to comment on blogs so much (thanks, Puddles, fer saying that you get up at 4:30 am to leave comments b/c now my mom will try that trick) BUTT I have a BIG QUESTION FOR THE EXPERTS and here it is....Has blogger made you log in order to leave comments even though you are already logged in? My mom has had to do that a lot lately and if anyone gets a comment from her it took a lot of minutes to do that. I hope she doesn't have a virus again or else she'll start thinking about throwing out her computer and I don't want that to happen beclaws I could lose touch with all of my furiends! Please help! Love, Daisy
