Regular readers might have noticed that Blogger appears to have made a few changes recently, which first resulted in spam comments somehow getting copied in to those who had opted to subscribe to posts, and now seems - at least, over the last few days here - to have stopped routing some spam comments to the filter altogether.
I've had about 10-15 spam comments per day get published on old and recent posts, though the spam filter is still working for others. Be assured, I will hunt them down each day and delete them, though the sudden cessation of my 'recent comments' gadget (as well as the Twitter gadget) doesn't make that easy.. .:/
If you have spare change, however, don't waste it on anything spammers might try to flog you - there are much worthier causes out there.
