Kyle noticed something we can change to cut down on the number of spam 
comments in geeklog.  He noticed in his logs the following google search 
after people tried to post spam comments.

"post a comment" anonymous "Allowed HTML tags" 

If you search for this you will find a series of links mostly to geeklog 
sites that point to the post a comment page all loaded and ready.  Simply 
changing the 'Post a comment' link on stories to a form button would 
eliminate this problem.

Hi Tom,


  I thought you might find this Google search interesting. I have found it 
in my webstats several times now after SpamX has blocked the spam comments 
from being posted on my sites.


   "post a comment" anonymous "Allowed HTML tags" 



Supporting those on the front line of freedom!
