Spam...

I am truly sorry that I have put those funky letters back on but without them I have about a dozen "spam" a day. most have the word Afganastan in them... therefore I do not even want to open them in my email to "moderate". I will wait 2 weeks and try to take it off again... that is ... IF I can because when they change the interface I can not find how to change it again ...nor can I find how to change ANYTHING in my template again... I guess Blogspot doesn't want you to have ANY control over your blog anymore.

sorry to let off steam like that. if it would be easier for you all to send a comment in email please do that.. I have very few commentors but I like each and every one of you, and I hate to loose you because of those idiot letters. Meanwhile, if anyone of you is on the new interface can you tell me where I find my settings and comment spam and things I can change like that... thank you!

That's too bad, Pat. I have been lucky so far in that the spam is caught by Blogger. I hope I don't have problems because I hate word verification...

As to the interface, I am still using the old one... I won't switch until they make me and then I will probably get annoyed!

I notice they changed the wording about the interface changing from 'it's changing next month' to 'it's changing in the next few months'. Maybe they've had a lot of complaints. I tried the new one, hated it, went back to the old and like Kelly am not changing until they force me.

Sorry you're being bothered by spam. Mine goes into the spam box but there's lot more than there ever was.

Like your other two commenters, I am still using the old Interface and like them, will only change if FORCED to....There was a place on the NEW Interface where you could choose to use the old one--it wasn't obvious, but it is there....

I still think Comment Moderation works better than those 'letters'...What doesn't automatically go to Spam, you can delete before posting....Sorry I'm of no help, Pat.

I have to use the letters too Pat. I've just been spammed too many times and don't want people who subscribe to comments on my blog getting messages about prescription drugs and the like. I'm happy to type in the letters and make it easier for you!
