Death Knell For MIPTC Comment Spam

Some time ago, MIPTC followed Google's lead and added the No follow code to our comment coding to prevent comment spam. Unfortunately, it hasn't worked.

Comment spam is out of control. I'm so frrrustrated with taking so much time to delete it that we've developed the ultimate weapon.

First, though, please realize that MIPTC tried and tried to come up with alternatives. After adding the 'No Follow' code, comment spam almost seemed like it got worse. We next reprogrammed the administrative site to make it easier to delete comment spam. I spent way too much time deleting comments encouraging you to play poker and visit strip sites. All of this at significant expense and effort to prevent this parasite.

It still didn't work. We finally recoded the administrative site to delete any comment with more than three html links. Same amount of comment spam as before, just more comments to delete.

So, regrettably, MIPTC has installed software to patrol comments and automatically delete any comment that adds an html link.

You can still comment, but you will no longer be able to put a link in a comment. If you want to comment and post a link, send me an email, and I'll add it to a post. You can also call MIPTC's audio comment line at 206-338-3088 and I'll post your audio comment.

If anyone can come up with a better solution, I'm all ears. Just don't put the link in the comment box.
