Captcha the Flag

After spending about an hour today removing comment spam, I have decided to activate the captcha feature in Blogger. So now when you want to post a comment you have to decipher a squiggly word and type it in the box. Guess I should be happy that my blog finally reached the level of fame that attracts the lowly, sleazy, money-grubbing spammers that are trying to ruin the internet for everybody :-).

I find it hard to believe that spammers make any money... there must be some really stupid people out there!

captcha captcha captcha - can't recommend it enough. My spam went from 30 a day down to zero in three months.

Yep, wasn't too long ago I remember commenting on *someone's* blog that captchas weren't necessary unless you really had a high volume of spam. Turns out "high volume" meant more than 4 per day :-)
