Ew! Spam!

As you've probably noticed, we've been deluged with spam this weekend. I had about two hundred comments linking to loathesome sites before I waded my way to MT Blacklist and banned them. MT Blacklist blocked a couple of hundred, too. The ones that got through were from three new sites we didn't have blacklisted.

I cleared them out of everyone's blogs but unfortunately I can't retrieve the emails, so your inboxes will be clogged with notifications. Yuck.

I'm considering implementing one of those type-this-number-into-a-box Turing tests. The main argument against it (aside from whether or not it would be easy for spammers to ignore) is accessibility.

I don't know whether anyone reads stonesoup with a speaking browser, say, or via any other method that would trip over a What's-in-this-image? test. If so, I'd be interested to know it (via comments or email) if you don't mind saying.

What do the rest of y'all think?

Friday theme: Childish

I resist putting in a theme that is too serious, I refuse to become a political Friday Themes poster. I stick with whimsy.
