About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

I’m sick of having to go through spambot comments to make sure that real ones don’t get deleted (and I have caught a few that were mis-filed by Akismet), so I’ve added a new plugin that I’m hoping will help with it. It does use Javascript and cookies, so if you leave a comment and it asks you to turn cookies on, don’t panic. If it turns out to be a huge PITA for everyone, I’ll try something else, but I want to give it a bit to see if it helps.

ETA: Looking at the info on it, the plugin won’t accept comments shorter than 15 words, so it may or may not work for me. I’m going to give it a day or two.

ETA2: It doesn’t seem to do anything. I asked Kris to leave a comment, and it didn’t yell at him for it being less than 15 words. I’m hoping it will have blocked some spam in the next day or two, or it’s back to the drawing board.  It has an option for a comment form, but it looks like a pain in the butt to add it to individual posts, so I don’t think I want that.  It should work without it…  It’s WP-SpamFree, by the way, if anyone has experience with it.
