Unwanted traffic (or, “If the train is going west at 30 mph and the wind is blowing east at 45 mph…”

A windy day on the railway.

I’ve been getting a tonne of spam in the “comments” field on posts. I had been dealing with 5 or 6 per day but overnight this jumped to more than 100 in 10 hours.

So, I’ve added a little math problem plug-in to the comments function to try to defeat the robots and the bas***ds behind them.

Apologies to legit readers who must now brush off their math skills…

If this fails to stop the flood I’ll be forced to disable comments entirely, which I’d hate to do. I’ve learned a lot from the insights of my real readers.
