04:38 pm: **** Spam

I think only one of my friends doesn't use some kind of non-Live-Journaled tag, so she should just email. I'm going to set to kill replies that only have LiveJournal.

Wait, does that mean people posting replies from LJ are going to be deleted?

No, for example, your email is sent from tavella, like mine comes from mjlayman. But the Anonymous Spam people don't use a name and they come to the inbox as LiveJournal Comment. Unfortunately, when I tried to put that in, LJ sent me to a page where they complain about letting people ban other people, and they don't allow people who don't have an LJ account, but post, to be banned. I put part of it in, but I doubt it will work. I get roughly 12 spams a day and I know that's nothing to other people, but it drives me nuts.

Does that mean I need to use email from now on?

Well, you might. I'm having to delete large amounts of spam from the same posts all the time and I might miss you since you're at Anonymous.

Equally puzzled at this end...

Your comment came to my inbox as dewline. But there are batches of other comments (the comment line below my post has "Read 5 suspicious comments") that are spam. It's just very very annoying. I have 13 today and I'll delete them marked as spam. Doesn't make any difference. And it turns out that what I put in to ban doesn't work. :::sigh:::

Much to my consternation, I see an example of what you're referring to below. Bloody annoying.
