Daily Turismo Login For Comments Activated
It’s a brand new day. Or a brave new world. Either way, I’ve pulled off a band-aid that has covered a festering sore in DT for many many years. Yes, I’ve totally turned off anonymous comments. This means no more spam, but it also means you’ll need to register to comment on DailyTurismo. To register, you’ll need a valid email address to authenticate that you aren’t a spammer, scammer, or Elon Musk…but don’t worry, we promise to not share, sell, squander or otherwise abuse your email address and we promise to only deliver the best cheap used cars for sale on the interwebs.
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in’t.— William Shakespeare, The Tempest

Frabjous day, Jefe! Thou hast slain the Spammerschmuck!
I will miss the positive reinforcement from random spammers about the quality content of my posts though………
This is a great comment. Read about the best cars on the interwebs http://www.dailyturismo.com
Lots of good info here. My friend made $14 million from the comfort of his couch by going to this important webpage http://www.dailyturismo.com
Boooooo. Over a decade in this joint and now I gotta be on the grid! Boo I say!
First you register, then we get to find out what the “T” is short for. I’m guessing “The”.
Great question….I don’t know….I’m not sure anyone knows. I’m a huge fan of Smokey and the Bandit, and this name was just a car-oriented knockoff of “Buford T. Justice”.
Is the sagging headliner a metaphor for the continual decay of online discourse, slowly obscuring our vision of the world ahead of us?
Ha! I was just about to say the headliner was looking pretty good. Keep in mind that’s a mid-90s General Motors fabric woven from gossamer strands of monomolecular filament spun from baby unicorn spit.
I feel your pain, brother. There comes a point when it is no longer possible to maintain old ways. The infrastructure has been abandoned.
Example: I had to put up a ultra-simple single page website a few months ago, sketched something out in the old tools, no big deal, and it simply. couldn’t. be. posted. Form spam, mobile, https, certs, on and on, all needing “modern” site tech. I fought bravely, but in the end, yielded.
For DT’s situation, comment spam is the enemy. Today’s comment spam is not like old school comment spam. Our best weapon to deal with it is to authorize users. You can use an anonymous email or create one just for this, takes seconds.
On the plus side, you can make a nice avatar. In fact, if you like, I will make you one. And if, as I just realized, I may have offered to do this before and completely flaked it, I promise to do better this time!
I see the above response to FTB didn’t end up under the comment by FTB. Context now provided.
Nice Inca, by the way!
Inca? Or Bundt pan? https://www.nordicware.com/marquee-bundtr-pan
Most bundt don’t have bolt holes – but maybe I’ve been making the wrong bundt-i.
Thanks for the offer man, but it looks like I have to create yet another account to have an avatar? Is that correct??
Yeah, sorry about that — the profile images are hosted by Gravatar, which requires its own sign in. It’s not ideal, but it is what it is. I might be able to add custom avatars without requiring the Gravatar nonsense, but I’m trying to avoid too many changes to the website at one time. -Vince
All good man, no worries. I promise I’m not as grumpy about all of it as I probably sound in this thread. 🙂
And hast thou slain the spam with your vorpal blade?
I have made worms’ meat of them!
well done all around
These spammers are resilient. They solve captchas and confirm their email address…all for a crummy link that I’ll delete when I wake up. I admire their tenacity, but I’d personally call in a drone strike on their entire family if I had the power.
Yikes! All – sorry about the giant google ad on the top of the page — that was not supposed to be there. Trying to remove it.
Glad it’s not the earwax ad 😉
The top banner ad is gone from the site, but if you’ve got the site open in Chrome, the ad might persist until the next time you log-in-out or reboot. Something strange with Chrome making the advert persist, but if you go incog the ad goes away. Strange stuff.
Thank you for putting in so much work to make the user experience even better. I enjoy reading everyone’s comments so I would get a little bummed to discover half the comments were spambots. You’ve made one of my favorite sites even better and for that I am grateful. (And I have been too lazy to create yet another online account so as to customize my avatar which will surely be witty and sophisticated . . . . eventually).
