Special Note to Fellow BloggersPlease be aware that there are now wonderful tools, like Akismet (http://akismet.com/), for blocking spam comments that drive bloggers nuts. Actually, the number of blocked spam comments to this blog far outnumber the number of legit comments. I occasionally check to see if perhaps a legit comment may have been mistakenly blocked - I've never found one yet! I say this only because, as a heavy blog reader and commenter myself, some of the spam blocking devices (such as Captcha and other word verifiers) used by bloggers are both irritating and noneffective as well. And I always wonder if blog authors who use those devices realize that they often drive potential readers and commenters away. Think about it folks, if you use a word verifier, you are undoubtedly losing many readers and commenters.
