Comments Turned Off Due to Spam

Unfortunately, for the moment I’ve had to turn off comments here on mediageek due to getting deluged with hundreds of spam comments in the last week. These spam comment have links to all sorts of spam sites — casinos, online drugs, penis enlargers — in the hope of duping google into raising the ranking of their sites based upon having so many links to them.

I will fix the situation by upgrading the newest version of Moveable Type, my blog software, and using some free blog spam killing software. But I don’t have time to do that right this moment. So for now the spammers ruin it for everyone.
