In response to the feedback from yesterday, I’ve turned off Bad Behavior and added a new plugin which does captcha. (Captchas? Chptchai? Is there a proper plural for this annoying and cumbersome acronym? Hard to remember, hard to spell, hard to pronounce! It’s a trifecta!) The new plugin shouldn’t daunt you with unreadable swirly characters, white on an off-white background with medium-white lines in the background. It just uses a few easy-to-recognize words and simple fonts.
It’s another step readers have to take in order to comment, and the rejection screen is appalingly crude, but otherwise the system should be painless.
Feedback desired. Let me know if the thing acts up. If you can’t post at all, please let me know: shamus -at- shamusyoung dot com.
