Change to new blog hosting

It is troublesome when you start fighting spam for website, application or even this Blog!

There were a couple hundreds of thousands spam comments I deleted last week. Originally I was going to filter every comment and make sure that the useful comments can be posted.

As the same time, I have a number of request about my blog articles and hopefully they are coming out at the same time when my new blog’s ready 🙂
