LJKSS5: :

  1. LJKSSN: Since this site’s 1st post 2011.01.26 (This site to replace http://blogger.LoveRules.Info LFNJQ1), we’ve gotten 53 comments, where about 97% of them are spammer-bots.  Fortunately the comment moderation stops 100% of them from displaying, but it still wastes my time having to go thru them. So,
  2. LJKSSZ: Starting now, in http://2.loverules.info/wp-admin/post-new.php,  “Users must be registered and logged in to comment” .
    1. This is off by default, maybe why so many bots out there are written to spam.
    2. This I guess will cut down spam 90%.  It will also sadly cut down valid comments, but since the spam is over 10x more the valid right now, the spam needs to be dealt with.
  3. LJKT2B: Maybe later, when I’m more anxious for comments, I’ll try the “Akismet” plugin which is built-in by Dreamhost.
