captcha this!

so i've been blessed with comment spam. thank you, but my blog's readers' penises are already long enough, and we have plenty of xanax to go around.

to combat it, i must impose on my dear readers (all three of them): if you wish to enter a comment, you'll now have to enter a code. the code is a radomly-generated string that's displayed to you as a graphic (that a spam-posting robot can't read); you enter it as text, proving (at least in theory) you're human.

this is called a "captcha." i don't know or care about the derivation of the word; i only know i've fought it for two days and it's finally working.

and yes, i did accidentally delete a post. i don't really remember what it was about.
