Site News: Combatting spam annotations
Over the last few days there has been an increasing amount of spam annotations appearing. I’ve now added an extra question to the annotations form which will hopefully prevent automated spammers from successfully posting things. It’s a simple enough question that you shouldn’t have any problems with it!
Many thanks to Mary and, especially, Paul Chapin, who have been doing a grand job flagging spam annotations for me to delete. It’s made my response much quicker and easier.
I’ve had an increasing number of spam comments on my personal site too — more than one a minute for a while on Friday afternoon — and have ended up switching comments off entirely for the moment there.
Let me know if you have any problems with the new system when posting annotations. It’s an annoying extra hurdle, but hopefully it will keep the site free from spam.
