Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam

If you ever watched Monty Python, you now have the spam song going through your head. I apologize.

I also apologize in advance for the pain-in-the-tush of having to fill in a Captcha word in order to post a comment. Those things drive me crazy, but I've suddenly been hit by masses of spam (which Blogger eventually catches and removes, doing a fabulous job, but it is still quite irksome), so it was either enable the word verification or set the blog so no one could post as "anonymous."

Is one of these options less irksome than the other, do you think?

I've had this happen in the past, and usually after a bit the spam dies down (probably because they can't get through) and I can take the annoying dingus off. In the meanwhile, I hope you'll still leave your lovely comments anyway.

Tomorrow--the first gardening post! (Or maybe today, if I get to it...)



  1. I don't have anything earth shattering to comment, but I'll initiate the dingus process to make sure it works.

  2. Oh, you're not sorry (about the song), you just want us to think you are. =) *teases*

    I comment with my LiveJournal username, so not sure if I'll see the CAPTCHA or not - we'll find out. =3 Personally, on the one hand, they're annoying as hell, but on the other, I've been the recipient of SO FREAKING MANY spams on journals of mine on other sites that I'll never complain about someone using them to cut down on getting spams themselves. The crap got so bad on LiveJournal that it's one of the reasons (one of many MANY) that I finally jumped ship for Dreamwidth. (Only now, they've gotten smart and dump their crap in through private messages instead of comments on posts, argh.) So yeah, no complaints from me.

    (Off-topic, but I still owe a ton of replies to the FFnP class - enjoying it to pieces!!! <3)

    1. PS - signed replies have to do the CAPTCHA too. Just as an FYI (I hadn't been sure if it was just anons)
