Trip the Comments Spamtastic
Well it finally happened, I had to activate the word verification system for leaving comments. I've had a few spammerific comments pop up here and there, it wasn't a big deal, until today. I clicked the spam box on my Gmail account looking for something else, and I realized I had only been seeing the tip of the iceberg, it was full of spambot blog comments! It's just one extra step to keep the blog relatively clean of pesky intrusions.
Besides, there can be some fun to be had with the words that the system makes you type up. There's been some creative monster mashing going on between Brutorz Bill of the Green Skeleton Gaming Guild, and Eli Arndt of the I SEE LEAD PEOPLE blog with their Word Verification Wednesday features. They stat up a host of critters named after whatever the verification word was. Go check 'em out!
