I turned word verification on. I don't get too many actual commenters but I get an increasing amount of spammers.
I debated letting these yahoos do their thing- Blogger does a decent job of filtering them and I find the horrible grammar entertaining. But sometimes they beat the filter and I don't want their links on my posts.
Hey, if you know any teachers who need examples of rotten writing, I have some great samples! I don't mind sharing their attempts when there are no active links.
These two seem to be using the same starter script.
This one could almost be mistaken as not spam.
