Just a quick note to let you know that I have finally been able to implement a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart) solution for our blogs.
This should effectively stop all the spam comments. If the person is a registered user they are not prompted for the code; however, if they are an anonymous user, then a CAPTCHA code is displayed under the comment box. If they fail to enter the proper code, the comment is never submitted to the server.
I am testing here on my blog (those reading this that are logged in – need to logout to see the code)
If you are an axcess.me™ Blogger and would like this solution implemented on your blog, send me a message either internally through this site or use my contact form.
You can still require anonymous comments to be moderated; however, if you do not feel the need, you can now rest easy that those who are commenting are actual people and not an Internet Bot.
