  1. Well, it’s kind of on the same line as seeing “Your Comment is Being Held for Moderation”. Anywho, yours was moderated because your “server request contained the HTTP_VIA header,” which is how a majority of my spam arrives.

  2. It seems that Bad Behavior will stop my SPAM-ING Problems for my comment script. I think I am gonne try it out. Thanks for the advice..
