Welp, my simple human test, where you had to type “vim” to enter comments on this blog, finally failed to keep out the spam. Surprisingly, it did work for 6 years before I had problems.
Over the weekend, there was a steady stream of spam to the comments. Fortunately, I don’t get a lot of comments, so removing all comments after a certain date was sufficient.
I installed this to combat the problem: https://django-simple-captcha.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
Installation and usage is very simple. We’ll see how it goes from here.
