New Comment Captcha

January 23, 2008

Ah, the joys of comment spam.  In an effort to prevent me having to keep marking comments as spam, I’m trying out a simple captcha plugin for wordpress:  Did you Pass Math?

I do find it amusing how I have practically no human visitors to my site but spam bots manage to find me just fine, wanting to link to all sorts of “fantastic opportunities”.   So if you are a real human, why not try to post a comment?  You have to correctly answer a very basic math question, and then I have to approve your comment.   But hopefully I won’t get so much spam even in the moderation stage.  Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
