Editorial Note: Word Verification Added to Comments

I have added a word verification requirement to the Comments function. In order to post a comment, you will have to type a word that you see on screen, just like you do when ordering concert tickets online.

The word verification is supposed to prevent comment spam, which is the posting of generic comments to a blog which link to an advertisement. Comment spam has been on this site for several weeks, and I have deleted the offending posts.

Now, it appears that a newer generation of comment spam is disabling the delete function. Hence the need to enable the word verification requirement.

The use of "word verification" is an affront to my personal privacy. I refuse to use it!
