I’ve been quite pleased with how well WordPress has saved me from dealing with spam comments. (And by default, keeping you guys from having to deal with them as well.) Although, after only about 3 months of blogging, it is frightening that I have this stat:
“Akismet has protected your site from 1,827 spam comments already.”
I’ve thought about adding one of those “captcha” doo-hickeys to make sure real people have to type in real words in order to submit comments and such, but then I see things like this, when I am trying to do something and it’s trying to prove I’m human:
“What’s this?” it asks. How the heck am I supposed to know? It looks worse than my endocrinologist’s chicken scratch in my medical records. I give up. I must not be human (go diabetes cyborg!) and should not be submitting this, obviously.
