We just installed WordPress 2.0. Of course there are a few kinks that we need to work out, but thus far it looks good.
Perhaps the best new feature is the inclusion of built-in tools to fight comment spam — so at this point the security image, which has worked against many commenters, has been disabled.
Thanks for upgrading, that made it very difficult to post.
You’re welcome. 🙂
The automated WordPress spam-blocker (Akismet) has already detected 27 spam comments to Cross-Currents since the upgrade shortly after midnight. That’s why we had no choice but to employ some sort of solution — yes, we realize the image was very annoying with certain browsers.
If it works your blog will be even better.
Thank you very much for disabling the image.
I’ve been reading this blog for almost as long as it’s been around, but due to visual impairment have not been able to comment.
