 Anti-spam measures

After having a visit of some 5+ spams (I’m known by the spam bots! Is that good?) I just installed a captcha-like plugin. It requires some basic arithmetic skills from y’all; but on the other hand, I -am- a math blog after all.

2 People had this to say...

Hello, I wanted to comment to check out what maths problem I had to solve!

Just a thought: Doesn’t Google do simple maths? Maybe the spambots will evolve to start sending the sums to Google and return here with the answer?

Then again, I know nothing about how such things work…

Once they do, I’ll change Captcha. Or require accounts. Or something.

Want your say?
