  • disabling spam blockers

    I have removed one of the spam blocking tools from my website.

    I was using a really useful tool called Akismet to block spam. The best part about it was that it was invisible to the end user. But then it was allowing certain spam comments through. That is the point where I installed ReCaptcha (to the chagrin of some of my visitors).

    But, since I am using ReCaptcha, I don’t think that I have a problem with spam. And I know of at least three occurrences where people had problems posting comments, so maybe it had to do with the double spam blockers. Also, after reading a posting on Wired.com, it seems that ReCaptcha will be reliable enough for a while.

    So, I hope this will improve your experience of tadych.us. Of course, things will never be perfect.

    Wow, two useless links up there. Be sure to click on the #17 link below. It may be the best one yet!
