Comments on Journal Posts

I have received several e-mails asking why comments are turned off on the Journal Posts.  The reason is SPAM.

A CAPTCHA has successfully been implemented to stop robots from generating SPAM; however, it seems there are diligent individuals who enjoy writing comments with attached urls, that lead to sales promotions in China.  Labour is inexpensive in developing nations and companies can employ people to do this.

When a post is published, comments are active for a few weeks before being automatically turned off.  If I can solve the SPAM issue, comments will be activated again on all posts.   Cheers,   F2A
