I'm getting my first comment spam. Does that mean I'm famous? Nothing too bad but I might have to change comment settings if it gets worse. I didn't put any barriers to commenting when I started because comments is what I wanted. Plus, it seemed really vain to think I would be the target of comment spam in any significant way. I'll start by simply deleting any completely commercial spam but may end up having to do the word recognition thingy.
By the way, does anybody else feel like a complete idiot when they don't enter the word verification letters correctly?
