Using Blogger’s Spam Post Gadget on Your Blog
Realizing the importance of spam control to their users, in recent months Blogger have reacted to the matter of spam prevention by giving users a spam inbox.
This basically means that users can access all comments to all posts on their blog and mark any ones that are spam, so that the system will remove them from the blog and record the offending IP.
While it was initially available only to users that activated it, Blogger’s spam post gadget (in reality an integrated tool just like posting) is accessed in the Blogger Dashboard, via the Comments tab.
In your Blogger Dashboard, you should see the following notice:
We have enabled automatic spam detection for comments. You should occasionally check the comments in your spam inbox.
This probably tells you all you need to know, really – spam comments can be browsed through and marked as such by ticking the box next to each comment (or the All button for an entire page of spam comments) and clicking SPAM. You can also DELETE comments if you wish to tidy up some previously made observations that don’t take the conversation anywhere. Note that if you mark a legitimate comment as spam this can have a negative effect on the poster, so use this sparingly and only when appropriate.
Items marked as “spam" will be listed on the Spam tab. Items incorrectly classified can be restored by using the NOT SPAM button.
