Few changes

Well I spent some time digging around the configuration of Serendipity. This was spured from my hatred of link spammers. I checked out the apache logs and found all the enteries, but they are all comming from different IP’s (smart bastereds) so IP based blocking is out. I enabled CAPTCHA’s on all comments (sorry, I know its annoying), and made a few additional changes to the spam protection, I’m hoping it will help a bit. And as it turns out DGC is having the same problems.

I also enabled Karma voting, so you can vote on what you think of the articles (++,+,0,-,—).

PS, If you are intrested in the Apache logs from my spamming visitor, I included in the extended body.
