Blogger fights against Blogspam!

Finally! Blogger has decided to do something about blog spam and crapflooding. They added word verification - you know, that silly thing where they show you a picture with mangled letters and you need to type the word into a box, to post a comment.

It's easy to implement, and it is strong. You need to have good image processing software to defeat this simple trick - which means that most of the flood-script will be useless against this.

Since I had problems with crapflooding in the past, I switched it on immidiately. Yay! They also added a report button on the blogger top bar with which you can report innapropriate content.

Google is listening to our whining :) They react a little slow, but they are listening!
