weblogs.asp.net no longer usable as a blogging platform?

I get swamped by spam on my weblogs.asp.net weblog. Both comments spam and spam through the contact form. It is getting so bad that I think the platform is becoming useless for me. Why o why are we bloggers from the first hour still in stone age without any protection against spam. Implementing Captcha shouldn’t be that hard… As far as I know this is the same blogging platform used by blogs.msdn.com. Aren’t all Microsoft bloggers getting sick from spam? In the past I tried to contact the maintainers of weblogs.asp.net, but never got a response. Who maintains the platform? Why are we still running on a Community Server Edition of 2007? Please help me out, or I’m out of here.


  • For what it's worth, yes, mine also gets spammed a lot.
    Those of us in the Microsoft camp who blog IT articles appear to be on several hit lists.
    All the best,

  • Sir,
    I am the representative of the late honarable A.Chmea. In his estate testament, he left the DesignFactory to you. Could you please contact me to handle the affair


  • Post your problem in forums Feedback section, you will get response from Terri or other moderators

    fyi..Community server allows you to change the spam scores ,Global settings -> "Spam , ping and cross-posting"

  • I think this is one of those things were you complain to Microsoft directly as opposed to people reading your blog to stay current with technology. We can't help you but Microsoft probably can.

  • fantastic issues altogether, you simply received brand new|a new} reader. What would you recommend about your put up that you just made some days in the past? Any positive?
