I've had to add a word verification to comments to stop spam, which was picking up in recent weeks. It started with vaguely spammy comments by anonymous authors saying nondescript things, almost as if they were testing me for the offers of prescription drugs and nude photographs that started showing up in the past 24 hours. Let me know if you encounter any problems!

I recently added word verification to my blog, too. I don't like it but what can I do?

Amy - I know, I mostly worry that it will be an impediment to some less tech-savvy potential readers and commenters who might not be entirely comfortable with the medium anyway. Maybe I can just tell myself spammers are a sign of success, though!
