Windows Live Spaces No Longer Allows Managing Comments

Back on 6/7 Windows Live Spaces removed their stats page — Microsoft quickly posted a page that stated based upon user feedback they have removed the stat page. 
Microsoft has now removed that page.
 
Well they never asked me if it was good idea to remove the stats page — I personally used it often to see where people found my blog.
 
Tonight when I went to view my comments I was Greeted with this message:
Sorry, this page is no longer available. You can now keep track of the comments you receive through notifications.
 
Sadly, my blog receives a great deal of commment spam — and while normal comments do send an email notification, spam comments somehow do not.
So until I know what I can do to manage spam comments — I must turn all commenting off (which defeats the whole purpose & fun of blogging and reaching out to others!)
 
If you do wish to comment — please send me an email (which I CAN manage) to b.handler@hotmail.com
