Whitewall closing Galleries & Spam

Whitewall closing Galleries & Spam

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Sun, 09/02/2012 - 21:40

So, Whitewall has decided that they will no longer offer personal galleries, I have thus removed my link to their website (and my profile there), also because I have no images in their art market which they wish to focus on. Technically fotomoto uses Whitewall in Europe and I believe this service will continue to be available in the future.

Additionally, since enabling comments for anybody, subject to a reCaptcha verification, I have my logs flooded with failed posting attempts and the ones that do get through are just spam... I delete all of them. I moderate all comments (and there have been none except spam so far), but it makes me wonder how well reCaptcha works... or are there people out there who have nothing better to do than to try to post spam comments on random websites? I doubt a link on my website will be a) used by anybody (too few visitors) or b) have any significant impact on their page rank in Google...

Anyway, I hate spam! - And would really love some "real" (i.e. non-spam) comments. No registration required :).
