Comment Spamming

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

Google, MSN and Yahoo have announced that they won't pay attention to any href tag that has "rel=nofollow" as an attribute. They think that comment spammers are simply trying to increase page rank by their graffiti links.

I doubt that's going to help. First, it isn't just page rank they are after - they also hope people will follow the links. But more importantly, they'd have to put in a link before they'd know that the "rel" tag was added in by the web page software. So, while it's a nice thought, I doubt it will help.

I have added the code here to do that, however.
