I switched to comment moderation.
Also, it was aggravating to be forced to do something I didn't want to do by a bunch of people who are manipulating the web to the disadvantage of others.
Then too, I didn't want to lose the people who comment anonymously. Especially with the water line issue, I got a lot of good suggestions from anonymous commenters.
So I have enabled comment moderation. I have not done it before, I don't know how to use it, but I can learn. I figure, if I delete the spam with comment moderation, it shouldn't show up in my email. If it does, I am going to disable the thing that sends all the comments to my email account. I shouldn't need them to go there anyway if I am reading all the comments on some other list. The whole point of having comments go to the email account was just so somebody wouldn't comment on an old post and I would not respond because I didn't know they had left the comment.
All this is very "iffy" and I hope I can make it work but in theory it should work out ok. I know the system works because a friend uses it. What I'm not sure of is whether or not I can make it work, personally. I get frustrated pretty easily with blogger. But I'm going to give it a shot.
