Spam attack, I surrender

Below is a screen snatch of the blogger page where comments await moderation by Jaq and I. There are 34 and they are all spam.
 The actual spam file contains Eighty+.  These have all been intercepted by

blogger but recently, well quite a few months actually, spam has been getting through to the above section that should be genuine comments. Spam in the right file is not a problem as one click deletes it all but in the above file we need to go through and pick out readers comments and publish them.
A lot of blogs use the moderation system pictured  left. Personally I hate it as I find the wording often difficult to interpret.
Anyway try your best to `type what you see` as we do enjoy your comments.

Tell me about it. Why would you post a link on a blog that has no relevance to your own website? We get loads and some get caught in spam and others get published until I delete them....and why do they never make any sense?!

Dear Les and Jaq,

I shall continue to comment, and thus squint, myopically, at the numbers and letters that are required to open the blogpost to comments.

Spam is a pain in the proverbial.........

I remember when 'Spam' was a tinned meat served at High Tea on a Sunday....

With bread, butter, and piccalli...

Happy days.....

Why do they spam? most gets blocked but it is so anoying when your address gets stolen. We are getting blocked email messages from Japan about things suposedly sent from Sue.
Probably see you on Tuesday, must check a few things first. We will find you in the Marsworth/Tring/Bulborne area wherever you are.

Thanks for your comments.
Spam is such a pain. I wonder how long it will be before the spam can type in the words and paste their spam on the blog.
