I do love to receive, read and reply to comments left on my blog and am very aware how annoying it is to complete the spam filter letters and numbers each time you wish to say something. I've tried turning this off and have immediately noticed a huge volume of spam! I know it's frustrating, but I've reinstalled the spam filter for my own sanity! Please don't let that put you off - come on, give me a "hello", I'd love to hear from you.
