Comment Spam

Well, I guess I've tasted the unpleasant phenomenon of "comment spam". Because of this, I have added the little spelling out word "thingie" that hopefully will eliminate this unpleasantness. I hope you don't mind taking the 10 seconds or so to do this.
Isn't it too bad that we have to subject everyone to this kind of time consumption? As I understand it, by having to spell out this little word before leaving your comment, it stops the comments put on the web-site via computer, rather than personal effort. So, I'm giving it a try. Let me know if you REALLY find it offensive. (Actually, I think it's less offensive than the computer generated comments!)

I have had a lot of spam just in the last 2 weeks. After reading your post, I saw that there was something I could do, and I added the same "security" fix. Thanks!

I'm glad to hear I've helped someone else as well. Hopefully it will work for us all. ANYTHING to stop SPAM, right?

I don't think it's offensive at all for someone to require other people to type in a few letters before making comments.
