Captcha for WordPress

July 26, 2012

Reluctantly, I’m trying on a captcha form addon for my blog. It’s annoying, and it’s something I’ve always disliked, but I’ve just about had it with all the spam I’m getting on my blog. By way of an apology here are some examples of what I’ve been dealing with. They range from the bizarre and disturbing to the incoherent and incomprehensible:

Willis: “Greetings I am so grateful I found your webpage, I really found you by accident, while I was looking on Aol for something else…” Willis apparently sells footstools through Walmart…

John: BUY VIAGRA!!!!!!!!

Celia: “the post is actually the freshest on this laudable subject. i harmonize with your conclusions and will look forward to see your approaching updates” Celia’s link sends you to a discount home decoration shop.

Fanelli: “Great post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I’m impressed! Very helpful information particularly the last part :) I care for such info much. I was looking for this certain information for a long time. Thanks and good luck.” Fanelli would like me to visit their Swedish dude ranch.

On my list of skills: “Thank you, I have recently been searching for info approximately this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have found out so far. However, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive about the supply?” Link to discount cigarettes.

“Good write-up, I’m normal visitor of , maintain up the nice operate, and It is going to be a regular visitor for a long time.” Link to an appliance repair shop in LA.

“An interesting dialogue is value comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo topic but typically persons are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers” Link to baby carriages.

I have to put this in just because the author is apparently quoting Homer:

“I have recently started a web site, the info you provide on this site has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work. “There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.” by Homer.” The link is to a property management company.

Posted on my list of skills with a link to a day trading site:

“I do agree with all of the ideas you have offered for your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for novices. May you please extend them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.”

I get hundreds of these and going through and having to read them all is taking away valuable time from doing actual work or writing more posts. So. Sorry about the captcha.
