Well the technical crew that slaves away keeping WeatherGirl’s Station in fine fettle, has installed a plug-in that should make life in this tiny corner of the blogsphere a little bit easier.
Comments now feature SecureImage, a CAPTCHA program that helps differentiate between humans and bots. Thanksgiving proved a thankless time for dealing with Station comment spam. My oh my were the spammers busy. My in-box was groaning under the barrage of ringtones, tamiflu, and poker ads. The technical crew got a whiney earful, which proved just the right amount of incentive to do the buggers in.
For now I’ll be leaving moderation on but if Station spam is curtailed I might be tempted to let comments go live immediately. Time will tell. Grateful thanks go to the Station’s technical lackey.
