Dan/Eric – word verification’s great til you’ve had a drink & it takes you six attempts to post a comment! I didn’t even realise the first few times that my comments didn’t post so I just deleted them! & as you can see I write essays rather than comments so that was a bit of a bugger!
I don’t mind word verification at all. I had no intention of using it until I got up one morning to 15 comments (which I knew wasn’t so, at least not all at once that way) … then I installed it. Only one person complained to me, but when I removed it again? 8 spam messages were left within the first 30 minutes.
