In the next couple of days I’m probably going to be installing a captcha system of some sort for commenting, simply because spam comment traffic has grown so intense that I’m literally killing 100-200 spam comments a day at this point.
I don’t like the idea of having to do it, because captcha is a pain and I doubt any of you like it any more than I do, but I really, really hate the spam comments. If I’m not going to turn a profit off my site then nobody will, dammit.
EDIT: Note that this is still a “probably,” since I am holding out hope that the new build of Akismet will take care of things. But it hasn’t yet.
