Ok, Turning Moderation Off Again

Blogger says it has a comment spam filter again.  So I will see how well this goes.  I really hate having moderation turned on, as it makes it more of a PITA to comment and I don't like having to "approve" comments.  I've had no A-holes around here so far, only the Chinese spammers.

Looks like Blogger is able to detect them.  Let's see what happens with moderation off.

Ok, well you can't turn moderation COMPLETELY off and still filter spam.

One got through and the comments tab I saw last night was gone. A google search revealed why.

What you CAN apparently do is turn it on for posts older than n days and then the filtering works. I've turned it on for posts older than 2 weeks for now. Let's see how that goes.
