The K-Bosh on Spam

So I took a radical move but it should pretty much squash the spammers that are getting though at this site.  I just installed a plugin called iQ Block Country.  At this time only people from the US, The UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada and a few other nations can access this site.  I realize that may effect some US citizens in other nations and that is too bad but, it should all but end our spammer... »
