Word verification!!!!!!

Okay why did they add more words and made it harder to see? They didn't think it was hard enough the way it was!? Before this change most of the time I'd need to spent 10 minutes trying to post a comment I could and was able to post. Sorry to those who have it, I just spent another 25 minutes trying to post a comment on a blog with verification! Normally I don't give up, but it's just too much, I totally understand why people use it. Getting spam is a pain, for me thankfully most of it goes into the spam folder, not always. This won't stop me from reading the blog's that have it. If after 10 minutes I can't get it right, I'll stop trying! Not within my control, So it is what it is... Thanks

You are not alone in this irritation! I give it my best go. i even started putting my comment in notepad first that way if it disappears I can just copy and paste.

I hit the stupid reload the word verification thing a zillion times until I get one that sort of looks like I might have it figured out.

Google has really missed with this one. I guess providing a better spam system like wordpress etc have is asking too much.

They are gearing toward business blogs not private ones. Leaving many loyal users in the dust IMHO.

The usual response i see on many blogs is hey it is free so I can not complain. Well for one google blogger users pay by providing information and usage stats to google.

There are other free platforms that in my opinion once you make the change are much more secure and adaptable - just me hee hee.

Every tried to figure out what the voice one is saying or banging or what ever it does geezzz.

I understand completely. I went "naked" for about a day and I was buried by spam. So I went back to word verification. I will appreciate it when you are able to comment but will understand when you stay away.

Kmilyum, Yes i did what a fool worst then trying to see the word, could not make it out at all!

So did you end up cleaning up or not!

Judy, Sorry your spammed a lot, I understand that many must or be buried. It's okay I'll still visit, if I can I'll comment if not it's okay, just wanted folk's to know why I haven't commented on their blogs. Have a great weekend:)mkm

I have taken word verification off all three of my blogs. I can't read it either. Blogger has great spam filters, so I don't get much spam. When I do it's no big deal, because I can just delete it anyway. If you have moderation turned on, you will see all the spam and can get rid of it. I rarely comment on any blog that has word verification on it.
