Change in Overhead Wire Comments Policy

Hey all, its not a big change but I got 100 spam comments last night and I think my laptop got taken over by a virus. I'll probably have to wipe it clean and start over but for now any comment on a post older than 5 days will be moderated. That still means recent hot topics will show up right when you post. I don't want to moderate really, but this is the best way I could under blogger without reverting to open access that seemed to not let certain folks post before. Hope this works for everyone.

Road rage and comment spam are the same really - both are caused by people not thinking about the person at the other end being a human. Public transport is good in that it increases the person-person interactions and I personally have met some interesting and wonderful people this way.

I've had similar spam problems on my site and have had to enact some moderation of my own. Although, like you, I don't like to moderate because I like free/open discussion. Gotta do, what you gotta do.
