I’m sure a lot of you have noticed that ridiculous amount of spam we’ve been getting in a whole heck of a lot of different languages. It is doing nobody any good and is only providing a slightly trashy atmosphere around here. Daily I’ve been deleting some sixty or more spam comments that have nothing to do with anything about Guild Wars 2. So for the short term we will have to shut down the comments altogether.
Luckily it isn’t all doom and gloom and I’m not just saying this as a bandage. Expect to see the comments to come back soon with a solid update to bot detection. This update is coming and simply requires a bit of time on the back end to make sure it is all properly put in place.
Keep an eye on the Hub for news for when this finally is implemented. If you have any questions, comments or concerns you can e-mail me directly at Lee@tentonhammer.com or send me a tweet at @CanadasMathlete.
