Anti-spam word verification now required to post comments

In an effort to block the annoying slew of blog spam which has invaded Blogspot, I've instituted the word verification system. This means that in order to post, users will have to first type in a list of letters and numbers that are displayed. This verifies that there is indeed an actual human on the other end, as the letters are displayed in a way which devices that scan blogs can't read.

I hope this doesn't prove to be too big of an invonvenience, but it should eliminate the spam.

Let me know if it's too much of a hassle and you'd rather go back to dealing with spam.
