No More Photo Comments
After I don’t know how many years that I’ve been running my own Gallery-powered photo server, damn comment spammers have finally found the site and have been posting two or three an hour.
No more. I deactivated comments. Sorry to those who like leaving me little messages on them, but I’m not going to waste my time deleting trash. The purpose of my online photo album is for the photos—not your comments.
One day, if I manage to do a lot of upgrading of both my hardware and the version of Gallery, and there’s a proper comment spam management tool, I’ll turn them back on. Theoretically, the ones that have been previously left should return, too, since they’re still in the Gallery database. They’re just not visible.
Sorry, due to comment spam abuse, new comments on this entry are closed until I find time to upgrade Movable Type and enable registration and moderation.
