Please moderate

This blog has now been up for a good three months and today I received the first spam message. I´ve heard about the concept of spamming through forms but never cared… until today:

Here´s my dilemma: I could throw in a chapta in order to distinguish between a spamming bot and an enthausistic reader/poster but it greatly reduces the usability. For me personally it’s exactly this reason to decline in a response ’cause I don´t like to create an account for everything.

Furthermore I strongly believe in “security through obscurity”, so let´s see what can be done here.
