Thanks very much to my good buddy Steven Johnson (better known as the social media guru @huxley on Twitter) for reporting that my blog comments were completely fucked (my words, not his).
So, after securing my blog comments – I broke them. Aaargh. Even after testing them, they appeared to work for me (which was a side-effect of how I did the test) it didn’t work for other people. Yes, my testing should have been more thorough.
Anyway – I’ve installed reCaptcha after fighting with the default MT Captcha (which is fucking extremely broken in strange and interesting ways) I’m up and working again. If you find it broken for you – send me an email.
