Blog?

It's kind of a blog if you don't think about it too hard

Really, spammers?

January 1, 2013

When I added a simple comment system to this blog, I intentionally did not include a CAPTCHA mechanism. I assumed (well, hoped) that this blog is both obscure and custom enough that it would be largely ignored by comment-spammers.

I was wrong.

So, now there is an extra are-you-human check when you go to submit a comment. It's not the traditional "try to decode these symbols that vaguely look like letters if you squint really hard" CAPTCHA, since nobody likes those. Hopefully it will be sufficient to deter the bots, at least.
