Spam Problem

You probably noticed that we have been experiencing a spam problem in the comments section here at the Blog. It has been both annoying and offensive.

In an effort to stop this spamming, I've added an extra step necessary to post a comment. After you type your comment and click on the "Publish" button, an extra screen will pop up asking you to type a string of characters. Do so, then click the "Publish" button and your comment will be published on the Blog.

The extra screen will look like this . . . 

I'm sorry to have to add this extra step. Hopefully, it should stop the unrelenting stream of spam that we have been getting. I have my fingers crossed!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you Pete. Yes the spam was annoying and offensive and it is a shame to have to recur to this but other sites do this for the same reasons, so, no complaints on my part.
