word verification on comments
To foil the spammers for a while, I added a little word verification task for commenters. This additional step is only meant to verify that an actual human being is doing the commenting rather than a spambot. Anyone can still comment anonymously on any post as long as they can type groovy distorted letters like these into a little verification box. There were just too many advertisements popping up in the comments section, for products that I really didn't want to endorse. At least I think they were ads. My friends wouldn't really be devoting blogs to the sale of ceiling fans, cat toys, and penile enhancement pills, would they?
