Can we add a reCAPTCHA to the comments section on the blog posts? The spam comments are increasing rapidly.
[Update 1: Removed spam comments from education.ok.ubc.ca and added the Akismet API key to the site. Akismet is more effective at resisting spam than reCAPTCHA. reCAPTCHA also generally not accessible. -JS ]
[Update 2: Talked to Amanda, asked her to consider disabling the commenting feature on the education.ok.ubc.ca site. -JS]
[Update 3: Spam comments now being moved to the Spam folder directly by Akismet and will get deleted automatically after 15 days. -JS]
