    My WordPress site was started Nov 2012, but I've hardly updated it because my time on it is being consumed by approving or deleting comments. I get too much SPAM COMMENTS advertsing a purse or shoe or etc website. The worst was when I posted a good topic and then automatic spammers jumped onto it! I quickly had over 1000 spam posts and one of them was automated to spam post every 12 minutes! I temporarily solved this problem by unpublishing the particular web page / topic for 1 month, then the spam died down. Now spam posts are building up in every of my web pages! I can't afford to pay for anti spam services. If you know a free one please suggest! So I need a Wordpress theme that: 1) can disable comments for a page 2) if it has comments, there is an anti spam box to fill in a visual cue, - like a number or letter combination 3) I also need a theme that has space for advertising. If there is a better blogging system other than WordPress please suggest! My WordPress site: http://rideabikeforlife.com/

    The story on spoke protectors is hilarious. "I know how to tune a rear derailleur, but somehow sometimes the upper cog limit goes bad." That's priceless, a real knee slapper.
