This sucks, but the gambling comment spam has hit a critical limit, and I’ve wasted a stupid amount of time trying to solve it (without luck). 


So I’ve closed commentsAnd now reopened, with my own clever nofollow solution.


To enumerate my frustrations:



* The code for both .Text and Community Server’s code is way too complicated.  Why is an open-source app — which is supposed to encourage hacking from other devs — full of such highly-abstracted code??  A main reason I settled on CS/.Text was because I know ASP.net fairly well (and ASP extremely well).  Unfortunately, the extreme complexity/abstraction and lack of decent docs pretty much cancels that out.  I’ve seen PHP apps which were easier to figure out (and I barely know PHP).


….If I’m going to waste this much time on fixing one little thing (comment spam), it’s so tempting to just write my own.  I specifically tried to avoid that, though, because I have so many other technical time-drains.


Argh!
