I made a mistake.

A forum for Hauptwerk hardware vendors to post information about their products.

I made a mistake.

I made a mistake. I thought that turning on the comments for my blog would result in a path for people who were interested in what we do to ask questions and comment abput the organs and components that we create.

WRONG!

It has resulted in a stream of spam and sales pitches that have been both time consuming and worthless.

So the question is; if the forum already knows my email (it is in my signature) why should I need comments on my announcement blog? I don't think I do.

So I hope no one is offended if I turn my blog comments back off.

Best regards,

Thomas

I see that you use Wordpress for your site. There are lots of plugins for Wordpress that could help against spam. For my site I use Antispam Bee that effectively blocks almost all spam. It's worth a try before you shutdown the commeny function completely.

There is an anti-spam plug-in in place but I still receive unwanted messages.
