I love to get real comments from real human beings and after hearing remarks that there are too many hurdles to leaving comments on this blog I tentatively opened things up last weekend. For a few days commenting was so easy every spammer and their pet scripts could and did comment. That’s 70 spam comments (some of which even made it live before I deleted them) and one genuine human being comment in about 5 days.
I progressively tightened things again and we’re now back to the previous hurdles. Sorry about that folks. This weekend I’ll look into some other options.
