Hate the Spam

After a suggestion from Dan, I looked into other forms of spam prevention… specifically, those using CAPTCHA technologies.  I’ve decided to employ a product called reCAPTCHA.  It’s pretty nifty.

Get this: the words that you are asked to type in are scans from old texts that are needing to be digitized.  So, by participating in the visual challenge, you are assisting in the work to digitize old texts.

    reCAPTCHA is now removed. I should have tested it first. Users were not able to post comments, but somehow, 3 spams still got through.

    Yep, I was unable to post. Funny how the bots still could.
    I never had good luck with CAPTCHA’s in the past. I was hoping you’d get it to work.
