Word Verification

Just a quick note: I have added 'Word Verification' on my comments. I have been getting quite a few comments of SPAM lately (people just posting a ton of links or random characters). Dad, I know you had issues with commenting before when you had to do the word verification, but hopefully that won't happen again this time.

What this does is to prevent automated systems from adding comments to your blog, since it takes a human being to read the word and pass this step. If you've ever received a comment that looked like an advertisement or a random link to an unrelated site, then you've encountered comment spam. A lot of this is done automatically by software which can't pass the word verification, so enabling this option is a good way to prevent many such unwanted comments.
