It’s a Monday morning, and you’re sitting down with your first cup of coffee.
You open up your blog, and you’re excited to see that someone commented on your latest post.
“Fantastic!” you think. “I’m finally starting to get some traction with my site!”
Then you look closer, and you slam your coffee mug down in disgust.
The comment isn’t from an excited, engaged reader who enjoys your writing and wants to join the discussion on your site.
It’s from a spammer.
Comment spam is an annoying, disappointing part of life online.
As you start your blog and begin to grow it, comment spam becomes a daily hassle. Dealing with it is a lot like playing an endless, wildly irritating game of Whack-a-Mole. The game never ends, you waste a ton of time, and no one ever wins.
Perhaps it’s time you got yourself a better hammer.
