So typing in that annoying code before posting a comment was a pain in the ass part of the body. In fact, it was not enough to stop spam, so not long ago I added a vaguely fun (or not, for some people) math entry plug-in as well. Both of those, together, were enough to stop all the spam I was getting.

But I love convenience and ease of use, so I will be trying a few new services to automagically capture spam and do away with it. I do not know how well these supposedly transparent items will work, so if you notice anything strange or confusing or if comments don’t seem to be getting through, let me know. (I will still be able to see your comments if they are caught as spam, so do try.)

If the plug-ins don’t work, I will, sadly, have to bring the numbers back into play.

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and love of fine cheeses.

No more math! You truly are a saint.

Where were you when I was taking calculus? I could have used your math-eliminating skills then.

Now, that would be a mutant/super power. Math Dematerializer! I’d be beloved by awkward teens everywhere, which would surely be a new demographic for a comic book-style super hero.

FYI, three spams have already been nabbed successfully. But it makes me cringe for later on. Will they start to figure out that my protections are off and flood me like they did before? Difficult to say. Let’s pray to Maths Dematerialiser (his British name) that the addition never return.
