    Hi.

    It appears that some spambot has found the blog. So far it has bombed only one message with 20 replys to one message, all filled with links to porn etc sites. Not good.

    Is there something to be done or do I have to remove the possibility of comments? How does that happen?

      You can disable comments for the time being.

      I know work has been done for the next release to add CAPTCHA to these comments, but it hasn't been released yet I'm afraid.

      Ok thanks. I guess that's what I'll do if I have to. Commenting is nice feature though.

      ...waiting for next release... ;)

      Thanks,

      Vesa

      Vesa, iamdecal did some work on the CAPTCHA thing and it works GREAT!  I have it on my blog.  Here is a link to the thread discussing it.  http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1592604&forum_id=479691
