We were asked in the comments why we have word verification and comment moderation turned on. We did turn word verification off for a little while but got a lot of spam and decided to turn it back on. We have moderation turned on for posts more than 4 days old as
sometimes people comment on our older posts. The moderation means that they are sent to our email and we don't miss them. We love our visitors and when people take the time to interact with us we want to make sure we see it.
