Just tried adding a comment to your recent post

https://west-wind.com/wconnect/weblog/ShowEntry.blog?id=961

and the math-based validation at the end isn't working; I guess might be guilty of having got such a simple sum wrong once, but not on the four subsequent attempts. I even tried the approaching it from the Javascript angle of '5'+'9'='59', but to no avail 😃

Thanks for letting me know.

It's safe to say your math is not that bad... but I guess mine is 😄

Turns out there's an anti-spam timeout filter in the post interface and the math in that was not good - incorrectly converting to minutes and not resetting after a repost.

Anyway should be working now and if there is a timeout you now get an appropriate error message.

Thanks again,
