I dumped the word verification the other day - Thanks, Mrs. Bitch for telling me how -- and I'm pleased to say that I'm not getting overrun with spam. I've gotten one or two spam messages per day and all but one has gone straight to Blogger's Spam Folder.
Most of it has been run-of-the-mill pron and one was for lawn products. The best one was entitled "You may see the humor in this" and linked to some of the most paranoid Antisemitism I've ever seen. I'm kind of impressed by someone's dedication to trolling since I think that one came from a living person and not a Spambot. And I thought I had too much time on my hands!
