Completely off topic – Fighting Comment Spam here…

We run this blog on a content management system called WordPress. Actually, Allan Barnard set it up that way, we inherited it, and we’re delighted with it. Except for the SPAM, and that’s sure not an issue specific to WordPress blogs… it is ubiquitous. The variety we get is “comment spam”. I should show some of [...]
