I just wanted to mention that I turned off my comment verification a few days ago, after a general card blog movement to save us all time, which is so precious at this time of year. I haven't had a single 'spam' message since then, either! So if you haven't yet, maybe you might want to consider removing your comment verification for a few days, and see how it goes! You can always delete specific comments if you needed to. Simon Says Challenge made an appeal, you can read about it here.
