P.S. — A New Comment Feature to Block Spam

Huckleberries Online has been getting cluster spammed today, by a tenacious creep pushing gambling. In a move to block this jackal and other spammers, the SR online tech team has added a step for commenters. It’s simple. But it still means another click or so. Now, when you post, you will be required to fill in the e-mail box below your name. Don’t worry. It is solely to confirm that a legitimate user is trying to post. Your e-mail address won’t appear on your posted copy. Next, you’ll need to go to your computer e-mail where you’ll find a message from the SR confirming your post. Click on the link, and your comment will be posted. Finally, you can see the posted comment by clicking on the “see your post” link at the bottom. Sorry, we have to do this. But I’ve had as many as 100 spams in a half hour period today. Let me know if you encounter any problems.

Please keep it civil. Don't post comments that are obscene, defamatory, threatening, off-topic, an infringement of copyright or an invasion of privacy. Read our forum standards and community guidelines.
