New Comment Procedure and Blam

Hi Growers. Have you noticed all of the spammy messages in my comments sections lately? This is called "blam"--blog spam. I'm working to eliminate it, because it is VERY annoying. The best way I know how at the moment is to enable a "word verification" feature. Commenting is really just as simple as it ever was, with one little step added. At the bottom of the page where you write your comment you'll see a "word" written in groovy word art looking text along with a space to type the letters that you see. Type in those wavy letters and submit. Blam is automated and therefore it cannot recognize the atypical text, which means we should see less of it.

My apologies and gratitude for the extra effort.

Troy: Thanks for the anniversary wishes. Can't believe you are 29!! Would have guessed 25. But then I remember how old Chuck, Lori, David, J&J are and it sinks in. cmmjr

Ahh...29. And thanks for being the first to comment with the extra step. We know who the first responders at GrowingSense are!

Troy,
Is it weird that I actually enjoy the extra step?
