Word verification

Folks -- for years I've let the comments roll without word verification or moderator intervention. 

In the last couple months I've been deluged with spam.  Ten or twenty hits a day. The Blogger spam filter catches 90% or them, but I still have to track down the others.  It takes time and effort and it annoys me no end.

So.  Comments will now require word verification.  I apologize.  I hate to do this to you.


  1. Awww! We'll manage, Jo. I do hate the word verification, but then I'm not deluged with spam...unless I'm just clueless to how much Blogger has blocked for me.

  2. I, too, hate word verification. It feels insulting to the folks kind enough to make comment on the blog.

    I just can't waste the five or ten minutes a day these spammers cost me. A sorry affair.
