Well folks, I've always hated those stupid things where you read warped letters and have to verify that you are human by telling the web page what letters you see, but it seems that I have no choice. Some asshat keeps posting dozens of spam links in comments to my posts and so it seems that the only way to limit this is to require posters to jump through hoops.
I just wanted to let y'all know WHY I was going to enable the feature and let you know that I regret having to do it. I hope that you will still take the time to make comments, because that really is what makes this all worth the while to me . . .
