Quick Question...

...for those of you that use Blogger.

Is there a good way to completely block spam comments?

I wouldn't ask, but 1) I've no ideas for tonight (and ran out of time due to distractions, I'll be honest), and 2) the spam is starting to bug me.

Comments like "Hi, I like you blog........................" and every one of those periods is a separate link to a questionable site. Actually, most of the ones I see are in Japanese or Korean.

Thus far, I've been deleting them on an individual basis, because there doesn't seem to be a "report stinky evil user" feature (and I've been deleting them permanently because I don't want the hassle of revisiting them months later trying to figure out what they are). Is there a better, more helpful way?

-Signing off.

I don' think there is, short of full-on "comment moderation"--that is, you have to approve/disapprove every single comment before it publishes.

Ah, I didn't think so.

Did you see the comment above yours (which is now gone forever)? It said "haha~ funny~ thank you for your share~" (followed by exactly forty periods, each of which was a seperate hyperlink).

Yeah, I've had a few of those before...not too many (although one day I got about 40!! on various old posts)
