Spam Commenters

Sep 17, 2010 at 7:02 PM

I'm new to blogging and to BlogEngine, which I've had running for about a month now. I guess my site is quite anonymous yet four spammers have found it and left stupid comments.
Since I have ReCaptcha enabled and working, I guess I have to assume the spammers are human and solving the puzzle. I was just wondering whether there is any ulterior motive to why they do that – is it just to post a website or are they trying to find out my email address?

Anyway, I turned on need login to post in Comments/Configuration and it has not made a login required. Is this the same for others?

Also, the Contact on the menu bar does not have a Captcha. Is such a feature available?
