People have been having problems with the anti-spam feature in comments. I’ve disabled the Captcha and enable some other things in an attempt to mitigate the resultant spam. I need to dig into the source code and fix the Captcha and other problems but I just haven’t gotten around to it.
If you have been frustrated by the comment issues please try again. I really like getting comments and don’t want you to give up on it.
Captchas suck as a rule. I’ve passed on commenting on a lot of sites because the captcha was a PITA. (I’m looking at you, Blogger.) If you can do something else (like a script catcher) and leave the captcha off, I bet your number of constructive comments will go up and your spam will be virtually unchanged.
