So, I happily and thankfully got rid of the word verification thingy on my comments. Which was only there cuz it comes defaulted that way and I never really thought about it as I'm not posting a lot of comments on my own blog. I did that three nights ago. Today I got porn spam in my comments for the first time.
It showed up in my email as if it were a comment to the Salads are kryptonite post, though it doesn't show up in the comments. I don't care and am not planning on putting the word thing back unless I start getting it constantly and it gets on my nerves to have to delete them constantly - but I just thought I should pass along my experience.
