After trying pretty hard to not have to institute anything that makes commenting harder, the spammers have forced me to do something.
I tried to install a MovableType Image Captcha component… It completely fragged my MovableType install, and I had to blow it away and reinstall. I bet this wouldn’t have happened to me if I was a good ColdFusion developer and started to use Blog.CFC.
After getting everything back up, I installed the Comment Challenge text-captcha plugin. It’s accessible, and it doesn’t, you know, completely hose my site, but I’m not sure how effective it will be. If anyone runs into any problems commenting, please drop me a line via my Contact page.
