Mr Blue with catnipAh, it’s come to this. I’ve had to turn on comment moderation because the evil hordes of the Cømm3nt-Sp@m Børg have found their way to Ocelopotomus.

So, if you comment, you may experience some lag time before your brilliance actually appears on the site, depending on whether I happen to be asleep/cleaning up Mr. Blue’s hairballs/accidentally time traveling/out running errands etc. at whatever time you post.

Hopefully this is just a temporary situation while I check out some possible solutions. I’ll probably wind up installing a plug-in like Spam Karma, which I’ve been procrastinating about doing but now seems unavoidable.

Or possibly I’ll just have Mr. Blue hunt them down (once he’s finished rolling around in his catnip) and shed giant tufts of blue-grey fur that swallow them alive, still shrieking out their useless pleas for mercy.

In the meantime, any readers with WordPress blogs of your own who feel you’ve successfully licked the comment spam menace, please feel free to post hints and recommendations down in those newly delayed comments.
