Department Of BlogWorld Security

Just a heads up to the legions of readers of Bob Canada's BlogWorld worldwide-- from now on I'm implementing the dreaded captchas in the comments. I know, I know, I hear you groaning. I hate them as much as you do, but it's become a necessary evil.

Since I started my blog I've done my best to avoid using captchas, but lately things are getting way out of hand. The past few months the number of anonymous spam posts has increased exponentially, to the point where every single post is just lousy with them. I'm tired of seeing comments like this one:
Congratulations! Very excellent post. Rarely have I ever seen the point crystallized so clearly. It's great to come across a blog like this that isn't the same outdated rehashed material. Excellent read! I've bookmarked your site and am including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
I hope you'll please visit my site as well, at www.rawthrobbingpenises.com
See? We can't have nice things! So I'm increasing the security around here. Just be glad all I'm doing is adding captchas and not going all TSA on you. 

I hope this won't deter any legitimate readers from commenting on my posts, as I enjoy getting feedback from you. Well, almost all of you.

Also, if you do comment on a post, please include your name. Even a screen name is fine with me. Just don't post a reply as "Anonymous." A while back a Mr. Anonymous ripped into me for making a joke about Indiana being the meth capital of the world. If you want to disagree with me I'm up for it, but I'm not gonna have a public argument with someone who can't be bothered to sign their own name. My name's out there on the banner for everyone to see, so I expect the same from commenters.

OK, then. Lecture over. Back to our regularly scheduled programming.
