It's the same way with blogger spam comments. Now first of all I must say that Google Blogger's spam trap works fairly well in catching most spam comments before they can actually appear on the comment section of a blog post. Once in a while a spam comment will get through, but it's a simple process to delete it.
However, any spam comment is still sent to me via my Google email account, and I've been absolutely amazed, then annoyed, at the amount of spam that is sent my way. Like leprechauns, it gets in, wastes my time as I sort through and delete it, and then it's the same thing all over next time I check my email.
I do not care to make use of captchas; I want my readers to easily comment on my blogs. Blog captchas require you to see an image, usually a string of letters and several numbers, and then type them in a box to prove you are a human. I often fail the captcha test. Either I am not a human or I just can't see very well. Either way, they are frustrating to me, and I don't want my readers to have to work to place a comment in my blog. If you've never come across a captcha, here are a few samples:
As for the email notification of the spam comments, I'm probably getting an average of six spam comments for every one legitimate reader comment. That's an annoying amount of spam email to wade through.
If you are a blogger, then you will know that these spammers are very persistant. I have received spam from the same businesses over and over.
Here are some of the spammers that have tried to post comments on my blog in the last several weeks:
