Interesting reading. Sorry you have word verification turned on under comments...usually just having you moderate them will keep out the spam...and it's just too hard to identifiy those vague numbers.

For five years moderation was sufficient

a few months ago I was getting hundreds of spam messages daily in my moderation queue. It was either add the CAPTCHA or turn off comments.

Thanks for including Judy Riffle's guest post at The In-Depth Genealogist. We love it when she "visits." Such great stuff!

Great list this week. Thanks for putting it together.
