Muff, the word verification is a necessary evil. I believe you were on your blog hiatus during "spam gate" of late 2005. Without proper security there was all kind of comment crap being dropped on us. Things like - Bob says: I like your blog. Check out mine. And if you click on the link there would be something about getting prescriptions or refinancing your house.
What kind of Prescriptions? Was it a good rate? erjhh was the one I just entered.
