I've tried to do this without that screening, but it meant an hour of work a day.
I get about three to a dozen spam comments a day and don't want them posted. I post nothing for money here and am not interested in promoting any website or sales schemes.
You scum wallowing spammers might just save yourself some time and not bother putting up such comments that seek merely to promote your products or website or newest scam.
If a website is attached to a comment, I generally I won't post it. So give it up!!
Actual comments that reflect a reading of a post and offer information, opinion, or banter are fully appreciated and enjoyed, especially from people I know in real life or from Vegas discussion boards.
However, if you linked here from a discussion board, it is often better to comment on that board, so others can see it and respond. No one here ever responds to a comment. It is rare that anyone responds to the original post.
More Vegas related material is on Vegas focused blogs that I also write on a regular basis. See the right menu here for links to those sites.
