Yes, I know the anti-spam comment code is getting absurdly long, but last night I set it to length six and still had to spend an hour this morning deleting spam. One commenter has threatened to stop commenting if I don't reduce the length, but I'm sorry, I just can't deal with all the spam. If I don't get any more ads I'll slowly walk the length back down to what it was, but for now it's ten digits.
I sincerely hope my homeland security measures don't severely encumber your civil liberties. Keep commenting, please! But I had to make a choice, and I decided to tighten things up. Yes, that means that the comment terrorists have already won. Or something.
