Caught up in comment moderation -- apologies!

I love Squarespace, but their spam-handling tools are abysmal. Supposedly this will be addressed in an upcoming release but so far there's no word on when that release will be.

Waiting for the next Squarespace Release

As a result, anyway, I have to put ALL comments through a moderation stage where each comment needs individual approval (ugh). Time-consuming and a hassle, but it's either that or let all the spam comments through...and there have been a LOT of spam comments which I've had to block.

I've been a bit behind in comment moderation but have caught up now. Apologies for anyone who has been wondering why their comment hasn't been posted!

One of the things I like about Word Press is that there are plug-ins that handle moderation quite nicely.

I am also a Squarespace user, and while I don't have a problem with the comment moderation (I personally like being able to review every comment before it posts), I am also looking forward to the new release. We are paying a premium for the service afterall, and as such I expect a top-of-the-line platform.

Debbie: I also use Word Press. It has a widget called Akismet that automatically weeds out all the spam. It is remarkably accurate.

Hello there, squarespace.com always intrigued me- but at last, I don't have the funds. Surprise to hear that they don't have a better system for comment moderation.
