After cleaning thousands of spam comments out of the system and upgrading Steve’s blogging software, things are back to near-normal here at TWN. We’ve made two changes to the comment system, hopefully temporary — we’ll find a more permanent solution when Steve’s back in town.
First, no html in the comments. It’ll just be stripped out. You can still leave a link, but it won’t be clickable.
Second, we’ve activated a captcha/security code. Captcha’s are absolutely terrible for accessibility purposes, but as a stopgap, it was the best we could come up with.
Please let me know if there are any glitches in the system.
