Most recent comments feed

I’ve just now noticed that a few spam comments have been slipping through the countermeasures I have. Sadly, I didn’t even notice it, since the emails notifying me of those comments got caught in my email spam filter. Ah, the irony.

Inspired by Jeremy Zawodny I now have a feed of the most recent comments on Mentalized. At least I know that entries from feeds I subscribe to won’t get lost in Spam Assassin.

An interesting side note about the spam that got through, is that it was on an entry for which commenting has been closed for a while now. It looks like the spam bots aren’t even bothering to check for the existance of an actual comment form any longer, but just post stuff directly to the commenting script.
