I am stepping on my soapbox once again.
Word verification sucks!!! And the new word verification sucks even more! If you can read the numbers on the first one - good for you and your guess is as good as mine if that is a 'u' or a 'v' on the second one. For people with dyslexia this "prove you are not a robot" makes life annoying to say the least. On average I have to click though 4-5 different ones before I can find one I can read and even then I rarely get it right. As much as I hate to admit it - I don't visit peeps with word verification turned on as much - simply because it drives me crazy!
And really - there is no need for this word verification - you can just changes your settings to "comment moderation - ALWAYS". That way you can see the posts BEFORE they are posted - delete the ones you don't like and post the ones you do. Blogger does an awesome job of filtering out spam automatically for you and I am lucky if I get 1 a week that slips through.
Here is what I have my setting done like......Okay stepping down off my soapbox now - but feel free to share this info with others :)
