I will advice you to go in ocationally and delete that comments that you suppose do not contribute to your good traffic and let those others stay.

All spam is actually not bad spam. Some of it can give you more traffic. And some of it you can have some fun with.

I can understand, and realize everybody has their own preferences. Sure I would prefer RSS feed than email, but I use Bloglines. I would have to subscribe, initially sort, and ultimately delete the feed as my feeds would be growing (not to mention be on the bloglines website, whereas my email is always up). Very time consuming. What I do for all my comment subscriptions, I create an email filter to go directly into my Spamnix folder (Eudora). It sorts by subject so I first delete the crap, and leave the “[ProBlogger Blog Tips] New Comment On:” and scan the comments. As, I just saw your post, it works for me and that’s my preference. In a few minutes, or hours, or tomorrow, I will transfer my Spamnix folder to Trash. I only delete my trash every few months, just in case.

But, I’m sure eventually there will be some super-duper comment plugin created sometime that has live comment preview, subscription to email, RSS feeds, and even spell check and goodies we probably haven’t thought of yet.

But putting a bit of scripting in the post you can create such a specific comment-feed per post in a simple way.

It’s easier than handling comments by email, must faster ;)

You should try using what I use – in addition to the Subscribe to comments …
http://www.problogger.net/comments/feed/
I see all the comments on all posts that I don’t even comment on. I just might not look at it in real time or regularly, but I always scan the entire feed. It’s interesting to see posts the REALLY early posts every once in a while.

something like:
You can keep track of new comments to this post with the comments feed.

For example:

The recommended spam solution is Akismet combined with Bad Behavior. Absolutely a Godsend.

When I do respond, I am one who ticks the box so I can read follow the conversation outside your pages. So, I get incoming emails and even though I look at all the new comments (real or spam) .. my eye tends to just ignore the spam. In fact, I can’t remember EVER seeing any penis enlargement spam on the posts that I am subscribed to.. although I have seen many cialix and phetermine spam comments plus a few with about 100 links in them.

Also – it’s not like it’s a total shock or anything … Spam happens. As a blogger, it’s not like it’s something new or anything like that … most of the bloggers here are also probably used to it too.

As a Sidenote .. that akismet actually works well I’ve noticed .. I was surprised. I still seem to be gettting spam on “pages” though and haven’t figured out a way to stop it, even though the template has been adjusted to remove that option, the “page” doesn’t have comments enabled, and stuff like that. I get more peeved at that type of spam.

It does a wonderful job of spam control. So far no false positives, and only one or two spam comments that sneaked in.

Someone added this post to co.mments four hour ago. I just saw it on the main page. So here’s another way to keep track of this conversation, sans the spam.

I too love the email notifications – don’t get rid of it. With ProB 99.9% of the email are good, just the odd spam gets through.

The Akismet plugin has caught 100% of my spam so far (712 of them).

Also, another alternative is coComment, though its a bit nerdier then the nice, easy email option.

Thanks to your blog, not only I did increase my AdSense revenue, but also gained 2 valuable inches!

Heh, on a more serious note: Darren, I am sorry to have let my faith in you vacillate. Reading the title of this post in Bloglines, I thought the “make money online” keywords weren’t doing too well lately and you had to find a way and stick “Penis enlargement” somewhere on ProBlogger.
