I can’t keep up with the spam bombarding this blog; the Akismit plug-in is no longer working effectively. Until I have time to resolve this issue, comments by non-registered users have been disabled. I am allowing self-registration for now, but since WordPress is a big target, I’m expecting spambots to be able to self-register, and should that be the case, I’ll disable self-registration, too. Once I get a few minutes, I’ll put in some other form of anti-spam and open up comments once more.
UPDATE: I’ve tentatively re-enabled comments, adding the latest Spam-Karma plug-in to Akismit, and perhaps together they’ll take care of the spam issue.
