Sorry: Have to activate comment moderation
For a long time I have been allowing free posting of comments. Unfortunately I have seen an increasing frequency of spam comments to my posts. These appear innocuous enough on the surface, usually saying something like "Thank u..." Invisibly contained within the comment is a long list of web URLs to porn sites. I have to manually delete these, and it's officially become annoying as of this evening.
The change is fairly innocuous; anyone coming from outside Google will have to complete a "captcha" by verifying a couple of words.
