Defeated by spam...

Okay, I thought that turning on comment moderation might discourage all the Chinese-language spam. I was wrong. Either it is sent out by automated programs, or it is sent out by someone who never checks to see if their comments get posted, or it is sent by someone who relishes the fact that I have to log on to Blogger just to say, "No, don't publish this."

So, from now on it's no comment moderation. But you will have to type in one of those verification words to post comments.

Oh, well. As many have noted, sometimes the verification words are fun.

Hi David

Not to worry, it's all just "laterse" according to word verification. Periodically I tend to stick the verification on until the spammers bugger off, and then I go back to being unverified (though I do love those lexicon breaking words...)

Spamwise, I'm beset by angry economists who feel I'm joking about the Laffer Curve.

Hi, Matt--

I'm relieved to hear that they, in fact, eventually do bugger off. Better laterse than never, I suppose...

Hi, David T--

But you have been joking about the Laffer curve, haven't you? Or at least laffing about the Joker curve?
