comments spam

Wondered why my google analytics data was going up when there was not any content update in last 6 month or so.The secret was comment spam ;-(

Massive comments’ spam has been cleaned up. New version of BlogEngine has some better spam fighting features.

Blogengine 1.6.1 has some new admin features as well that allow more or less bulk comment deletes.

An upgrade from version 1.5 of BlogEngine to 1.6.1 was pretty easy since I did not have too many customizations. Left “themes” and “app_data” folders unchanged > deleted everything else > uploaded new files from version 1.6.1 without overriding before mentioned folders.
