D is for DISABLE


You write a pithy comment on somebody's blog.

Then an annoying window pops up. Sometimes you have to type in a nonsense word a few times before you can post your comment.

Sometimes you click away from the comment box before you realize it didn't post. So you have to comment again. Or give up and go away.

To be more blogger friendly--Disable the annoying box. There are other Spam gaurds that work great.

Happy Commenting!

I try to be easy to get along with.

But word verification is such a pain. I will write half the word when something snatches my cursor somewhere else. Aggggh!

You have tapped my secret thorn in the cyber-flesh, Jo. Thanks, Roland

Not too far back I took mine off and immediately had lots of porn sites advertised (special treat for my readers). But now Blogger does get the spam and none gets through, so go ahead, you can trust Blogger - disable :-)

On a plus note at least 9 times out of 10 you can read blogger Capcha's there are some sites I have given up after trying to translate a couple of times.But I have to say I agree with you.
Mine is disabled so feel free to visit !!

Wordpress could use a captcha, to be honest. If you use their akismet, you sometimes lose GOOD comments. -.- I have two that I can't get to, and the last three it took were from other AtoZChallengers. It was rather upsetting. I approved those, but now I can't get to the recent ones.

YESSSS!!! I hate word verification! I don't have to prove myself to you, Blogger! I just want to leave a comment!!!

I used to use it, but I've disabled it for this challenge, and probably will leave it disabled.
