Spam Alert! / How do we report spam in blog comments?

I can't see anywhere to report suspicious blog comments, I think this is an important feature.

The reason I found this out was that I wanted to report that the last comment on this blog contains a dodgy link. Please can someone follow up? Paging Jerry Janda

Hello Mike Pokraka Happy New Year

Good catch. I don't think we can do that now but I believe it is on the 2018 list for blog improvements (based on my faulty memory) cc Jamie Cantrell Moshe Naveh

I was able to trash the dodgy comment for now...I suppose until then you can report such problems here?

Hmm...I tried to remove part of my comment and ended up deleting all of the responses. Sorry about that. (I did see your complaints, Mike, and I noted them.)

I was incorrect to direct people to raise an alert about the overall blog/question, with an explanation that the alert was about a specific comment, as this penalizes the original poster.

The other two bits of advice are still valid.

  1. You can report spam via
  2. You can notify/ @mention me (such as in responding to the spam to help me find it).

Sorry for the confusion!
