math is not hard

I’ve been getting way too much comment spam lately.  Even though perhaps only one real person posts a comment to my blog every month, I get several spam bot replies every day.  So I added a Word Press plugin called Math Comment Spam Protection.  Basically, it just means that to submit a comment you  have to pass a brief math test.  How brief?  Well, can you calculate the sum of 2+5?  If so, you can pass the test and therefore leave me a comment.  If you can’t, I assume you’re a spam bot, and good riddance!
