I decided to disable the CAPTCHA in the comments section – at least for a few days. I haven’t seen much spam here lately, and I feel that Akismet and Bad Behavior have been doing an excellent job scooping up all the unwanted crap so far so I decided to do a little experiment. I will keep the CAPTCHA off for few days and see if the level of spam changes.
If I get hammered with spam, I will simply re-enable it. If I don’t, I might just keep it off for good.
Also, if ever got weird error messages when posting here, I apologize. I think these errors might have been triggered by the code in the CAPTCHA/comment preview plugin. Or not. This might help me track down the source of these issues.
What do you think? Is this a good idea, or am I in for a world of pain?
