Site Maintenance: Take that, Chinese WoW comment spammers!

I tried to resist this, but the continuing onslaught of comment spam lately has forced me to enable Blogger’s captcha system. It appears to be largely World of Warcraft related goldfarming spam, so you can take this opportunity to thank that subculture for this change. I recommend thanking them with repeated kicks to their groin.

I was making a feeble attempt to clean up these messes as they ocurred, but with all of the other draws on my time I have been a bit less diligent about patrolling comments on posts that were a week or more old. Stupid real life getting in the way of internet fun!

Those of you that are not comment spammers, please accept my apology for the addition four to five keystrokes to prove you are a human being with a soul. We fully intend to migrate to a platform where we have more control over the spam blocking features (*cough cough* WordPress *cough*), but until then please bear with us!

    I think you made the problem worse by invoking their name.

    It seems that way. I guess I will have to continue the patrol.
