New Comment Policy
I instituted word verification several months ago, but apparently the spammers can get past that. Since the spam is anonymous, I'm guessing this next step will block them.
So from now on, commenters will need to register for a Blogger account in order to comment here. Fortunately, the great majority of my commenters are already registered. I have at least a couple of valued commenters who still use the Anonymous tag, and I encourage them to register. It takes just a few minutes to sign up, and it's not like you have to use your real name or anything.
