PG just received a message expressing concern over his recent change to the process by which visitors can comment on TPV.
His purpose was to help avoid comment spam, which has been flowing in at increasing volumes, so he activated a sign-in plugin and added ReCaptcha to the comment form. There are some other spammy activities circling around the blog for which PG is looking for a solution.
PG has never and will never share emails or other information concerning those who visit TPV absent a court order to do so (which he doesn’t anticipate receiving any time soon). If anyone who has provided this information to TPV would like it removed, PG will do so if he receives a request from such individual.
If any visitors know about a better solution to comment spam than the one PG has installed, he would be happy to hear about it in a message.
