I can understand that some bloggers feel they need to implement a CAPTCHA to curb comment spam, but that doesn't excuse that a legitimate commenter loses his/her comment when s/he mistypes the captcha. If you use captcha's, you must redirect a commenter (whether bot or not) to a new page with with a new captcha and the commenter's comment still intact and ask them to try again. To just send them to a bare page with the message "invalid captcha" and no way to retrieve their comment is bad, very bad.
Comments and Trackbacks
I know, I know. I need to do it. I just don't have the time to rewrite it. I am considering just killing comments instead, which I really hate to do.
I know you know Alex. I was just peeved that my comment went up in smoke and needed to vent. Thanks for the reply :)

Comments and trackbacks have been closed on this site. My apologies.
Since MT-Blacklist inexplicably stopped working I had no other recourse than close comments and trackbacks to stop the spam. I've been meaning to correct this for quite a while, but life got in the way... in a good way I should add.
