Content Spamming

Sorry to all, if you have been trying to add posts / comments to this site. I have had such an issue with content spammers, that I installed a captcha program for wordpress. Captcha is an acronym for “completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart”. It is that graphic you see on sites like Ticketmaster or below this comment that is an image with words in it. What it does is stop automated programs from trying to write or add spam to your comments. I was getting about 20 spam comments a day, most for online poker. I finally decided to go with a plugin for wordpress called authimage. So far it has been a great little plugin, when I have had it working. When I upgraded to wordpress 1.5 the plugin stopped working, as did my theme. But, that is for some later discussion.
No more spam for me.
