Back to Word Verification to Deal With Spammer

As much as I despise the word verification feature on Blogger, I have turned it back on for the moment. In the past 24 hours this site has been overrun with at least 40 spam comments, pushing products from Viagra to "easy payday loans," and I spent an annoying amount of time removing the spam from posts up to two years old. I am assuming that this is a spambot, since the poster hits the site and departs in milliseconds.

I'll likely remove the word verification in a day or two when the spambot moves on to another site.
