Unfortunately, a couple of pesky little spammers have found their way recently to 46 Degrees North. Your comments are important, and I don't want the comment pages cluttered with ads and Russian gibberish. I'm getting tired of hunting down the offending comments and deleting them.
To block the spam, I've initiated the "word verification" feature on Blogspot, which will require you to prove you're human before posting comments. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience.
