Comment Spam and Problems

It's no secret that we've been struggling with our comment functionality for a while. The truth is that we're being overwhelmed with hundreds of spam comments a day from robots pointing to pharmaceutical companies, casinos and other typical offenders.

We've been working on various solutions to solve the problem but none so far seems to have done the trick. In fact, our latest effort to install the captcha plugin (that little piece of code you're asked to type in to prove you're a human) seems to be a miserable failure.

Anyway, we're still working on the issue and will be re-jigging the system once again this week in an effort to finally block most of the spam and allow everyone to easily make comments on the site. All I can say is thanks for your patience. I'll make another post on this topic once we feel the comment system is fixed and functioning better.
