I added a spam filter to our comments yesterday and since then we’ve blocked about 200 spam comments which is great. Whilst I was checking that no legit comments had been blocked I thought it may be a good idea to check the junk folder in Outlook!
I now humbly apologise to the 100 or so senders of valid emails over the last 3 months, unfortuantely dumb Outlook sorted them in my junk folder and dumb me didn’t check for 3 months. I’ve belatedly replied to many but if I missed you I do apologise so feel free to comment here or contact us and I promise that I will check.
Now off to investigate a proper spam filter that I’ll write about in our sister site SoftSift.
I hate spam though I now hate false positives even more!
