If you've been receiving a million comment notifications, I'm sorry! I got them too (a full inbox!?). Rest assured though, I will be activating comment moderation. It's bittersweet though, I know so many people (including me!) don't want to have to do the "captcha" or word verification, but with these crazy spammy robots out and about, we have no choice.
So don't worry, the problem should be solved! Thanks for hanging in there, and thanks for letting me know it was happening!
