Value of Captcha

Several people had mentioned having trouble with the Captcha on commenting which attempts to block spammers by asking commenters to prove their human. I have turned Captcha off. The number of spam in my incoming queue jumped from 1,007 to 6,000 within about 12 hours. That dramatically shows how useful Captcha is at stopping spammers.

The Akismet anti-spam plugin for WordPress is catching those so i’m going to leave the Captcha off for now. A few spam make it through Akismet but it is a few enough number that I can deal with them by hand.
