Spam comments

August 24, 2005

We’re still getting the occasional spam comment. Traffic on this blog is certainly not so heavy that we’re inundated, so maybe I’ll just keep pulling them off when I see them. But Blogger has a new feature – a word verification thingie – that will ask commenters to type in a quick, random confirmation word before posting. It will (for the moment) thwart the auto-spammers. It could also irritate the legimate commenters. What do you think?

    Go for it. It’s a little step that uses a randomly generated graphic that the spammers can’t (or haven’t yet figured out how to) overcome, so it’s very effective. Well worth the trouble.
