I’ve installed reCaptcha on my site in an effort to slow the tide of spam that my site is receiving. Before I installed reCaptcha Askimet was blocking nearly 80 per day. After reCaptcha was installed this dropped to 2 per week. Recently however it shot up. I got 4 yesterday, and this morning I woke to 22 waiting moderation.
That means that in all likelihood some poor soul sat there and typed in all 22 posts and typed in the Captcha texts. Why? Don’t they realise that it won’t get seen as comments will be screened? The fact there is a Captcha service installed means the owner of the site has some sense of decency and sorry, whoever you are, you’ve just wasted your (and unfortunately my) time.
