So we got our first series of spam comments. I was just waiting for them to appear. Automated spam comments is one of the biggest bane of maintaining a blog. You don’t want a bunch of unreadable junk in the comments with some ‘Buy Viagra’ thrown in.

So as the maintainer of this blog I had to enable CAPTCHA for the comments. But I hope it is not that obtrusive. Also as a try out I am allowing unmoderated comments. As it takes a human to post a comment now, I can safely assume that spammers won’t have enough time to manually put the spam comments. But this is just a test. Let’s see how it works out!
