Everything I read about blogging tells me that I should turn off the word verification for comments. And that made sense to me. It's a barrier. It's a bother. I don't really like going through that step on other people's sites.
So I did that. And, oh, the spam. So much spam! Awful, awful spam. Constant email notifications about spam.
I couldn't take it anymore. So I'm sorry, but the word verification step is back.
I love it when readers comment. I love it when you share your ideas with me. I learn from you. It's the same way when I do TA classroom observations: I go there to help them become more skilled instructors, but I always walk away a little better myself, too.
So please comment. Sorry that the spammers made me put back up that little obstacle between us.
