You may or may not have noticed that the volume of comment spam here has rocketed over the last few days. Starting Christmas Eve this site has been hit hard by the scum of the Earth. I've been working to prevent this being a problem and now have it under control. If all goes well for the next few weeks, I'll turn the systems in use here into a publically available system for comment spam prevention. In the meantime, however, please let me know if anything is behaving strangely!
