Blogs, like this one, can be a great resource for web visitors like you to find cool information you might otherwise miss. The best feature of a blog is giving you the ability to add a comment to a post, filling in missing info or adding personal perspective. Everyone benefits.
Spammers have turned their attention to blogs as a way to post links to their sites. They don’t care if you click on the link, they just want to post the link because search engines like Google and Yahoo rank pages higher if there are a lot of links pointing to them. The spammers created little scripts to bombard blogs like this one with a huge number of comments filled with links. Unfortunately, the more popular the blog and the higher it is ranked in Google, the more spam it gets hit with. The Kneeslider is getting its own version of a tsunami and blog spam is quite high at the moment. I have put some brute force methods in place to reduce the deluge but I prefer finesse so I will be experimenting with different approaches to fix or at least minimize the problem.
If you leave a comment, it will likely get posted without any problem. There may be a delay if it hits the moderation queue for some reason but all comments are received so do not send it twice if you don’t see it immediately. If things work out I’ll be able to turn my attention back to the proper subjects like motorcycles and new technology and you won’t see any more of this.
