Spam Strikes

That invasive pest ‘spam’ has struck this meager blog (and its cousin at NZ Life).  I’m finding all sorts of annoying or rude spam comments posted across the site.  To combat this I’ve installed a captcha.  You know what these look like:

You’ll see this when you try to post a comment.  I think the audio version () is pretty much indecipherable, but it’s entertaining to listen to once.

In addition to proving you are a member of the human race, you’re also helping to digitize books when you enter the test words.  More on that at the Recaptcha site.  Give it a try on this post!
