I caved. I had to get some spamocide for the Pointy Universe because deleting inane, solicitous comments from spammers was becoming a full-time job. From now on, when leaving a comment, you'll have to pass through an additional word verification screen. Nothing changes and I hope this doesn't deter your leaving the comments that I treasure so dearly.
I only have two words for spammers that forced me to do this.
