Weblogs.asp.net has a problem, it is spam

Is anyone at Microsoft listening to the SPAM problem here on Weblogs.asp.net? My “Can anyone do anything about the spam here on weblogs.asp.net?” post from October got over 12 spam comments posted to it in the past 24 hours. I have comments all moderated, but that just means I have a crapload of work to do each time people comment.

Also, when you click on a link from a comment notification email you are taken to an insecure site warning due to an invalid SSL Cert.

We really just need some updates software, something with better filtering, better captcha, etc. Please, can we get an upgraded weblogs.asp.net sometime in 2013?

Thanks , I've recently been looking for information approximately this subject for ages and yours is the best I have came upon so far. However, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you certain in regards to the source?

Word on the street is that they're going to upgrade it (the version of Community Server) before the end of the month. However, I've heard that before.

Hello there! This blog post couldn't be written much better! Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he'll have a great read.

Thanks for sharing!

I changed my settings to not allow comments on posts older than two weeks.

I haven't had a spam message since.  

Of course, I haven't had any comments either.
