spam spam spam

I've turned on comment verification as I am currently getting a dozen spam "comments" a day. I'll turn it off in a month or so in the hope that the spammers have been discouraged by then.

I know a web-site that always leaves it's intro entry at the top (presumably by re-registering it as the latest entry after adding any new content) to act as a spam net. All the spam appears there and comments on other entries can carry on as normal.

thanks for the suggestion - unfortunately my spammers seem more interested in older posts! Interestingly I haven't had one spam since I switched to word verification - the previous day I had 14.
