Name Change

I decided to change the name of one of my posts. It was title Star Wars Beta News because it was about the lifting of the journalist NDA on SWTOR. ¬†However, I was getting dozens of spam comments on it every day. My spammed comments went from 130 or so to 190 since Saturday. But that’s only part of the fun. Every spam comment’s IP address gets added to the Ban list. The number of blocked attempts by banned IP’s went from 150 or so to 1100 in that same time frame. That’s ridiculous.

So I changed the name, hoping it was the popular SWTOR and Beta connection that was bringing spammers here. Not sure if it will make a difference. But we’ll see. I wish I could figure out how to turn off comments for just one particular post, but I can’t seem to find that option.
