I was in a rush to get this darn blog finally done, so I threw some stupid anti-spam measures on here. Namely, the comment form included 20 textareas, 19 of which were
display: hidden and one of which was randomly the right one, and any text in the hidden ones would cause the comment posting to fail.
It only took a spam bot 48 hours to figure this out, I guess, because the last hour I've been hammered. So I implemented a CAPTCHA as another short-term holdover until I can code up something good. At least it immediately stopped this spam bot whose crap I've been deleting for the past hour.
Hopefully this isn't too intrusive. I think it fits the site fairly well, as you will probably agree once you see it.
