Comments are back

I've had problems with auto-posters putting nonsensical comments on my posts. But now Blogger has enabled comment verification.

What is this? Whenever you enter a comment, you are expected to key in a word (sometimes containing numbers) that you see distorted in a box. This ensures that a human and not a auto-robot is posting comments since software can't "read" this box.

It's called a "captcha" in case you want to impress your friends.

Check out the definition from Wikipedia

Kind a cool.

"The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution" -Bertrand Russell
