Time for a Vacation

My family and I will be leaving for an exciting cruise to Hawaii on Monday. In order to preserve the sanctity of this vacation, I have temporarily activated a CAPTCHA to block most, if not all, of the spam sent to this blog. Just to be clear on this issue, I hate CAPTCHAs. They unnecessarily inconvenience commentators by adding yet-another step to the commenting process and are sometimes difficult for even humans to decipher. With that said, I have activated the CAPTCHA a day early to ensure that there are no serious conflicts with the plugin before I leave, and it will be deactivated as soon as I have returned.
