The Latest in Trash Comments.[Editor] After a rash of garbage comments earlier this year, including many that were hateful and some that were simply spam, I first disabled comments entirely, and then later reenabled comments but disabled anonymous comments, allowing comments only from registered Blogger users. This has worked well for a while.
But now spammers have apparently found a way to generate comments and we have recently started getting many spam comments, so I have decided to turn on Blogger's comment verification.
Now in order to post a comment you will have to type in some letters, usually displayed in a blurred or a strange font, into a verification window.
I am sorry for this minor inconvenience, but I'm as sick of spammers as you are, and if this saves me even a little time spent dealing with this garbage, I'm all for it.

I understand. We've all seem to have to do it. I really, really hate spam and it does seem to work. So no biggie here.
