You know what really grinds my gears? Episode 2


When I have to enter that silly little word verification box when leaving comments or if I enter my password wrong in gmail!

I mean I dont mean to complain about any of your blogs really I promise this is just about that damn word verification.... I always screw it up and it takes me 2 sometimes 3 just to post what I have to say... I suppose I could type slower, pay more attention and double check before I hit the enter button but sometimes my fingers work faster than my brain.

As I understand it, the purpose of this is to stop spam but I would just like to point out that I dont have the word verification on and I haven't gotten one spam comment (watch me get one one this very post) to this day.....



Just sayin... think about it ppl...

Stay Pretty ;)

I hate those things too! I just think

"aww they're just new and haven't figured out the setup yet"

or

"please are you really that popular with the spammers?"

i hate word verification too. the worst part is that i can't ever figure out what the word is. Is that P or zero by an L? i don't know!

and bon don's right, it's the newbies who have it (i, a newbie, just figured out how to take it off!)

AMEN! I took word verification down a long time ago and have maybe gotten one or two spammed comments. It's a big pain in the butt to add that extra step ... and half the time, I don't realize I did it wrong until it's too late!

I took mine down months ago and have only gotten maybe two spam comments, which were easy to delete! I wish everyone would take that off... there are times when I want to leave a comment, but I just can't bring myself to deal with the word verification! Take it off, y'all!

p.s. And when I had the word verification up, I know for a fact that I lost several comments when people just clicked off the page without realizing they entered the word incorrectly. They'd email me and ask why their comment never showed up. So sad!

I hate them too! And they're never even real words which makes it harder to get them right!

I took mine off cos I was finding it difficult even to reply to comments on my own page and get it right first time. Sometimes i think I DO get it right first time and someone inside the computer is just trying to wind me up . . .

It's true, when you are new you have no idea, I had no idea until just now that you could take that off. :-)
