Then just toodle along to the NEXT blog in your follow list.
If you're still here, then here comes my current BIGGEST pet peeve:
Who dreamed these up??? Not only are they robot copy proof, they are ALMOST human proof too.
I HATE them.
Especially on a blogger blog. Blogger has this lovely anti-spam feature now which catches 99.999999999 percent of all spam so it never makes it onto your blog. (That little factoid is straight out of my head based on my own experience and on absolutely no other data.)
Since Blogger put up the anti-spam feature, nary a SINGLE spam has made it into my comments. Nary one.
If one DOES slip through, there's this handy dandy little trash can under it that can be clicked and VOILA - - - the comment is GONE.
If you don't want a spam in your comments even for a short time, you can go into your comment settings and check that you want to approve every single comment BEFORE it is published to your blog.
All these things make Word Veri nearly useless.
But, for those blogs still using word veri, instead of it being one slightly complex progression of letters, it is now this new two word monstrosity which is nearly impossible to deal with.
I simply cannot READ the word with the "blob" behind it.
I've been giving three attempts to publish my comments on blogs sporting this, and if all three fail then I leave them commentless.
BUT - - - my patience with it is getting really thin. I think from now on, if I see this nasty little piece of work I will just trundle along, leaving that blog commentless, without even ATTEMPTING a comment.
And I just KNOW that all of you really care about my comments and will shed huge alligator tears without them.
I just know it.
Evidently I'm not the ONLY one who feels this way, judging by what is being said in the comments of this post!
TEAR DOWN YOUR WORD VERI'S!!!! Pretty Please????
All words in this color font were a later addendum.
