Comment spam is lame

I've recently started getting a little comment spam on my blog. Nothing terribly offensive, just annoying (e.g. ads for insurance, online degrees, etc). I'm actually quite surprised that it's taken this long for the spam-bots to find me (I started this blog in August 2004).

Anyway, in an effort to combat this I've enabled Blogger's comment word verification. This means that when you post comments on my blog, you'll be be shown an image of a word and asked to type in this word to verify that you're a person and not a spam-bot. Sorry if this is a little bit annoying, but I'm sure it will be far less annoying than receiving comment spam!

I understand the precaution that you're taking. It can be annoying to receive messages which are not helpful.
