Comments – I’m still fishing your comments out of spam and not always getting them. The anti-spam acknowledges that it has falsely spammed 52 comments so far in November, compared to 13 for all of October and an average of 2 or 3 before that. On the other hand, missed spam was 65 for October and 0 for November.
So there has been a seismic shift in spamming anything which moves and I don’t know how to reset it or reteach it. With great respect to readers, I’d prefer that than if it was letting all sorts of spam through.
However, if you glance at the number of spams for October and this part of November, you’ll get an idea what’s involved in me having to physically go through every spam comment to see if your comments are in there. It’s added minutes to each sortie in and an extra hour all up for the day.
This seems to have been accompanied by a vast increase in hits over the past week.
Net service – today, I’ve lost net connection four times. Each time, it redirects me to BT but when there, does not let me login, due to no net connection. I reset the hub three times and each time got the broadband back, then on the last one, phoned BT.
To be fair, BT picked up the phone fairly quickly but just before the customer service agent took the receiver, BT gave an announcement that they’d had a massive problem today. It took me five minutes to convince the man that the problem was BT’s, which is a relief because I’d been sure it was my computer’s. He asked me to tell him what BT was saying prior to the CSA taking the phone.
Moving on, it’s working for now but if strange things happen, I think you’ll know what’s going on.
