New spam control

Good morning, all. Overnight, we implemented a new protective measure against spammers. It shouldn't affect your experience at all if you've been around a whlie. If you want more details, please feel free to email me at jeff.caldwell@meredith.com. Hopefully this will nip it in the bud and the spammer jerks will move along elsewhere! 

 

Thanks to everybody for your patience as we fight through this process. I appreciate everything you all do and will always strive to keep this place as well-lit, welcoming and comfortable as possible for you all. I look forward to moving beyond this junk!

 

Any questions or anything, just let me know! Have a great one today!

Re: New spam control

Good Morning Jeff - and thanks.  Yes, your new verification before posting should help with the spam bots.  They just aren't that smart yet.  Sorta like the spammers themselves.  To waste time targeting this site - well - enough said.

Jen the spam bots track where their clicks come from. When just a few click show up from one of their links they come back and pepper the site thinking it is a rich target. 

 

Someone here must have fell for it.
