Have you tried to leave a comment, only to be rejected repeatedly when trying to enter the displayed “captcha” code?

If so, please let me know. I’ve heard from two people who had this problem. Both are regular readers, and both say they tried repeatedly, without success, to enter the correct code.

As you may recall, I installed this screening mechanism on the advice of my hosting service after experiencing a glut of “comment spam” and being temporarily shut down.

If you run into a similar problem, please let me know (email ian@ilind.net). And you can always email me your comment, and I’ll bypass the system and post it.

    I wonder if problems are browser-related. (I’m using Opera)

    Problems might be related to upper-vs-lower case, presence or absence of a space

    It happened to me at least once, but I’m a persistent person & was able to get in eventually.

    One of several possible causes may be the need to enable cookies.
