The comment section has been closed

To celebrate the landmark of reaching 500k spam posts, I’ve decided to go EOL on the comment section. This decision has nothing to do with any workload of moderating comments as my “no JavaScript support = spambot detected” policy has had a 100% success ratio.

However, running this blog on a Raspberry Pi 2 means that disabling the comment section will put less strain on the PHP interpreter and thus makes a welcome optimization for this site.

In my experience, only a few readers will actually comment on posts (which is perfectly acceptable) so I don’t think I’m taking away a feature that will be largely missed.

If you want to join the fight against spammers, then I’ll ask you to consider joining Project Honey Pot by clicking the link below:

Note: the link contains a referrer which will let me know if someone joined the project by using my referrer. Feel free remove it if you so prefer.
