Comments are now protected with reCaptcha to try to reduce the amount of link spam that I have to sort through.  If you have a problem posting a comment, or notice any other aspect of the site that is “broken,” please contact me at the email address shown on the About page.

  1. Hi Craig, if you are using WordPress there should be no need to use captcha.
