Ghost Comments

If you pay as much attention to this site as I do, you may have noticed that a few of the posts have a comment listed, but the comment is AWOL.  I finally had enough of it and looked into the problem.  I’m using an anti-spam plugin that requires you, the reader, to solve a simple math problem – to prove you are a human.  It turns out that the version provided by my ISP is old and has a bug that causes ghost comments when a submitter fails the math test.  I ran through it myself a couple of times, and I found that omitting the answer or entering the wrong answer also loses your comment text!  That’s a bummer.

I’ve removed the filter  until I figure out how to get an updated version.
