I know everybody loves the shoutbox, but I had to uninstall it this weekend.
I was having to delete an average of four or more spam “comments” every day. I don’t know how I got on their hit list, but the spammers have been bombarding me in the Shoutbox, and the comments, too. And I just don’t have the time or patience to deal with it. And unfortunately, that plugin didn’t come with any spam-filtering features.
Plus, admit it, the novelty had worn off at least a bit, right?
