I was warned that there would come a point when the few spam posts I was getting would suddenly multiply to the point where I couldn’t keep up with them, but I didn’t listen. That point just came today.
I’ve deleted over 100 spam posts this morning, and installed a filter. If you made a comment that hasn’t appeared, or has mysteriously disappeared, I apologise – please feel free to repost. It should hopefully make it through the noise this time!
