One of the side effects of no longer requiring registration to post comments on cvillenews.com is that now I have to battle spammers. (There were 1,026 attempts to post spam comments in the last week alone.) This means that legitimate comments are sometimes being wrongly identified as spam, which sucks. I’ve just reduced the strength of the anti-spam system, meaning fewer good messages will be blocked, but more spam will get through, which I’ll delete when I spot it. Bear with me.
