Keep it under your hat

Comments are enabled again. I am seeking one of those scripts that makes people type that number you have to look with a magnifyin' glass to see on an almost same colored background before ya can post it. If'n ya got one of them, email me: the hotmail people know me simply as roguegenius. Death to those who ruined my Saturday!*

*In my researchin' for stuff to assist me in cleanin' the crap from my files, I ran across somethin' that said the sort of folks who did this to me target those who use certain words, like references to the tradename of salty canned meat products in very close proximity to the term used for the very thing you do when you want to add your opinion to someone's blog entry. As such, I am doin' my very best to not use those terms until I get a better security system in place.

Thank goodness the comments are back!

I've had a lot of success with Movable Type's "S-word" blocker--I only get one or two "S-word"-ers dropping crap in my Comments every couple of months or so, and I can handle those without even going into my site account--but I don't know if your host has a comparable program. Might be worth researching!

I found it, downloaded it, and have no clue as to do the first thing it says in the installment instructions. I am thinking this will take me a few days.

If you are still having trouble, let me know. I've installed lots of MT plugins on various blogs.
