Scratch the previous…. I decided I _really_ didn’t like forcing people to register with Writer’s Blog in order to comment, so instead I’ve added a bit of bot-check code to my site. When you want to comment, simply complete the code field as you see it above the comment field to approve your comment. I’m hoping this will be the best of all options, allowing real people to leave feedback while making it impossible (or at least a lot more difficult) for bots to leave their garbage lying around. The only problem I’m having with it at the moment is that it doesn’t allow trackbacks, so I’ll see if I can work with that.
