I got home this afternoon. After four days away, I had more than 500 spam e-mails, not to mention dozens of responses to my Fox column. In all there were 626 e-mails.
I’ve noticed some evil program is spamming my comments with advertising, mostly for drugs. Several people sent suggestions on how to deal with this before, but I didn’t do anything because the spamming seemed to be a one-time thing. Now I’m motivated to act. (Actually, I’m motivated to homicide, but probably won’t get the chance.) What do I do to defend comments against spam?
