Spam comments

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?

  1. 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.
