Hi friends,
There’s always a price to pay. It seems that my blog has been getting more and more popular lately. However, it has also become a spam magnet. It’s not just that the number of spam comments has increased to +65000…
Apparently, there are some unfixed security holes in the Wordpress software for this blog. Those can be exploited by the spammers to drop all kinds of stupid links into the blog roll. That’s the reason that section on the right is gone now.
I wasn’t really in need of or trying to sell you those items you may have seen on occasion ;-) If that’s the case, my apologies.
If anyone knows a good solution for this problem, feel free to drop me a note!
Until next time,
Matt
