Thoughts on the state(s) of the Old Continent.
Sadly, spam comments (often in old posts) were the reason for me to start monitoring comments, and as you have noticed the number of spam messages has grown dramatically lately. There is less immediacy, when comments have to wait, but I don't see much choice.
Note 2: Do you have to retain the "spam quiz" for comments, if you monitor the contents anyway?
Probably not - I'll get rid of it. You're right about the lack of immediacy; I'll just have to check my dashboard more often.
