Going reCAPTCHA-less

I’m conducting an experiment. I’ve noticed that I don’t get very many comments here on ye old blog lately, even though my number of readers hasn’t dropped off and a fair number of people comment on the links to my blog postings that show up on my Facebook page. I also know that the reCAPTCHA plugin that I use to prevent spam, which requires the commenter type in some words (or at least some combination of letters & numbers) has been giving more and more ridiculously difficult to decipher items1:

word verification wtf

So I’ve disabled my reCAPTCHA to see if (a) it encourages you to comment and (b) if I become completely overrun with spam.

I’ll keep you posted as to how it goes!
