To Captcha, Or Not To Captcha

I've been getting a few spammers leaving comments on both my blogs lately--not a lot, but enough for it to be a bit of a pain in the neck. I'd like to think it's because my blogs are super awesome and all the popular kids are hanging out here, but I'm realistic enough to know it's just a side-effect and I'm not really all that special.

I've decided to add a captcha when leaving a comment as a way to prevent spammers, but I realize it might be a deterrent to comments in general and I don't want that. I really hope that if this captcha business is too much of a pain in the ass for y'all that at least a few of you will speak up and let me know, causing me to repent and remove the offending device. In the meantime, I ask for your patience and cooperation during this difficult transition.

Thank you, and have a nice day :)

I think it is because all the coolest kids always comment... ;)

I have no worries about the captcha-as long as I can read it, and the one I see now is quite legible. There is a brutal one if you order tickets from the John Labatt Centre-it takes me at least 4 tries to get one of those...makes me think I'm going blind...anyway, you're going to think this is spam because I'm going off on a tangent...

Those who think the captchca are too much work, are not loyal enough fans!

I too, have difficulty in reading them sometimes.. JLC is BRUTAL!

But I'll read and figure.. just for you... and since you were so customery servicey about it all.. how could I not?
