A while ago, there was a bit of a discussion among blogging friends re leaving the comments facility unmoderated. Quite a few people felt the 'codes' given by the comment form (the one with the jumbled letters & numbers) - the thing you're asked to type in to prove you're not a spambot computer - were becoming harder and harder to read and retype. It was also thought that there had been a big decline in spam comments anyway. I decided to leave this feature active on my blog's comments and now I'm glad I did, as there has been a marked increase in the number of spam comments being left over the last fortnight. Are any other bloggers having a problem with this?
