Google just announced that they took Scott Johnson’s advice (no acknowledgement though…) and have added a captcha to new blog creation in an attempt to eliminate the automated creation of spam blogs.
Excellent. Now guys, can you please make it available as an option for us on our Comments pages, and, add moderated trackback support? That’d be swell.

oh, you mean like WordPress… 🙂
Steve, hey stranger!
Yea yea, like WordPress.
Foolishly, I keep believing that a major Blogger upgrade is coming *any day now* and haven’t made the move. I’m close to exceeding my monthly bandwidth allowance… might push me over the edge to toss my hosting co & go with WP or MT… we’ll see…
Oh yeah, how the heck are ya?! 🙂
