Looks Like Someone Just Ruined It For Everyone

So here's the deal: I just had four spam comments in a twenty minute time span. This is it, internet, I am cracking down.

Perhaps word verification will keep the spam away.

I had the same thing happen on the 18th. I also had a HUGE spike in the number of visitors to my site that day, but only 4 did spam comments. I turned on the word verification tool, and so far, so good.

I see so much SPAM in comments lately. It's revolting.

Another blog plagued by spam? It seems like wherever I go these days, bloggers are instituting word verification. Everywhere I go. Oh, no. Is it me??

Mary, it's true. I just don't think the Internets can have nice things. It was truly four spam comments in twenty minutes.

Typing the silly nonsense word is the wave of the future.
