I've had it with the new word verification system on Blogger. I'm shutting it off and turning on comment moderation.
Moderation policy: I will OK all comments that aren't obvious attempts to advertise products or similar spam. I WILL NOT edit or delete comments that disagree with me or anyone else who comments. However, keep it civil, not that this is a problem with you all. I reserve the right to call out an assbag who uses my blog to attack someone or be blatantly offensive.
