Spam-free in 2010.
I've managed to keep up with the spammers. I continue to insist that I will not turn on "comment-moderation." I refuse to make it more difficult for anyone to participate at The Brew Lounge. That said, the pathetic spammers continue to try. Here's the thing they may or may not know. As soon as a comment comes through, I get an e-mail. Better yet, I have one of them there smart phone thingies that buzzes with every incoming e-mail. So, usually in anywhere from 12 seconds to 12 minutes I'm able to see a spam posting on The Brew Lounge, go into my little admin tool and zap it. If they come in overnight, it's one of the first things I do in the morning...zap, delete, obliterate all spam. Annoying, sure. But relatively painless for me. I realize that often times there's no real person sitting on the other end sending out these spam comments, and therefore no one reading what you are reading right here right now. But, in case there is: You might as well give up, because I'm not going to. As in 2009, there will be no spam on The Brew Lounge in 2010.
