And that was the day Josh learned I was a bot.
Zach, I don't know what you mean. That comment just does not compute.
I've turned off Captchas for the moment, because we've isolated Zach-bot 9000. Also, I'm hoping people will comment on the new discussion thread.
I ended up switching to wordpress because their spam filters are so much more sophisticated and I know how much readers (and potential commenters!) hate CAPTCHAs. I find the google CAPTCHAs particularly hard to read, anyone else? I ended up trying a CAPTCHA bypass program called RUMOLA which works really well and makes blogging a lot less stressful if you comment on a lot of people everyday!
Josh again:The spam filters here were pretty good for a long time. They kept snagging Dr. Kovacs when he was commenting initially, but that stopped when he changed to a livejournal account. I wound up deleting a couple posts from the spam box every day, but they weren't making it to the front page until just recently. But thank you very much for the tip. I loathe CAPTCHAs and don't want to subject people to them unless I absolutely have to. The google ones are nightmarish. Is that an "n"? Two "r's"? And what's that long swirly thing?
