Comment Moderation

For the last week we've been having a problem with a troll who shows up in the small hours of the morning every night and leaves incoherent but highly offensive comments which for some reason the spam filter doesn't catch. I imagine that a week or two of comment moderation should cause this troubled soul to get tired of his game, so while I've never been a fan of comment moderation I'm going to turn it on for a while until we shake our troll. Be assured that all comments that aren't obvious trolling will be approved as soon as we see them.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's kilo papa, and no, it probably won't do much. My blog has been 100% moderated from the start, and he regularly shows up there even now.

It's not specific to your blog - he basically has a list of Christian blogs that he copy/pastes (usually quite old and recycled) insults to.

A pity blogger can't IP ban him. Then again, maybe they can.

I remember the same sort of thing going around several years ago -- fortunately the infestation was short-lived. I hate to moderate the comments, because we've always had such good commenters here, but we don't like to subject anyone to the annoyance of having to read the spam if we don't see it right away.
