Comment CAPTCHA, Removed At Request, Now Restored... And Removed Again

At the request of NTodd, I removed the CAPTCHA filter (the word and number you have to type to leave a comment). That was four days ago. For whatever reason, during those four days, I received no comments at all... none. On the chance that the changed CAPTCHA setting caused some sort of blockage on comments, I am restoring the CAPTCHA filter. I don't like it either. Sorry, galz & guyz, but just in case that's the problem, I have to try it.

UPDATE: some comments arrived while CAPTCHA was on; now I'm trying it again with CAPTCHA off. Give me a shout, please.

  1. why don't you disable it again and ask your readers to try to comment? That would at least test the theory that disabling CAPTCHA is somehow blocking comments.

    1. Dammit. I replied to this comment, 'noz, then to ellroon's below; now my reply to yours is gone. Let me see if it got thrown in the spam bucket...

    2. 'noz, your suggestion is exactly right, and now that some comments have come in with CAPTCHA on, I'm turning it back off again, which should also make ntodd happy... if it works.

  2. I am commenting to see what blows up.

    1. Thanks, 'noz; your comment proves it works w/o CAPTCHA. It still remains to be determined whether I am overwhelmed by junk mail. For now, I'll leave CAPTCHA off... but no promises (not even to ntodd!) that it will stay off.
