Housekeeping: TTAG Comments System Fixed, Amended

captcha

As you may have noticed, we’ve fixed TTAG’s comments system. Your bon mots will now appear immediately—unless they fall afoul of common spam criteria (e.g. too many embedded links). To achieve this miracle we disabled WordPress’s Akismet spam filter and enabled Captcha. Some of you may not have noticed; the above box doesn’t appear for commentators that have an account on the TTAG blog. Some of you may. The Captcha system keeps spambots from posting stuff while allowing humans to get through. I know: it sucks to have to fill out the form every time you submit a comment. But this frees RF and Dan to do something other than releasing comments from an over-zealous spam filter and deliver unto you amazingly awesome content. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
