It seems that certain blogs require you to enter a series of distorted looking letters into an entry field, obviously to prevent spamming bots from auto-posting spam to blogs. Doesn't seem to be active on all blogs though, I wonder if there's an option to turn this on?Either way, I recently turned on anonymous posting on my blog, and it hasn't really resulted in more spam being posted. But maybe that's because not many people are linking to my blog.
Yeah, that test you mention is know as a CAPTCHA test. Unfortunatly blogger doesn't support such a feature. :( I'm not sure why I get spam at this blog - I don't think there are many readers yet. Perhaps because it's associated with a popular word (iPod!).
