The amount of spam that hits this site on a daily basis is pretty staggering and annoyed me very much — but I grit my teeth and dealt with it because I didn’t want to make the few readers I have suffer through the making-your-eyes-bleed atrocities called CAPTCHA. Now I have found an alternative which not only doesn’t make your eyes bleed, it is also fun.
You want to make a comment on my site? You have to play a little game. Easy as that. Go on, try it out!
EDIT: How you can get cool spam protection, too:
Go to this website: http://areyouahuman.com/ and register for an account. The basic functionality is free. If your blog runs on WordPress or Drupal you can download a plug-in that does the heavy lifting for you. Also, their instructions are easy to follow.
There are also plug-ins for phpBB message boards, Invision Power boards, and vbulletin.
