Can we all disable word verification?
Yes, I know it is there to keep spam comments from getting through, but I have been doing a little experiment and turned mine off about a month or so ago and I haven't received one spam comment. NOT ONE.
I really HATE to have to decipher those crazy, hard to read letters whenever I want to leave a comment on someone's blog. I get frustrated when I have to do it over because I didn't get it right the first time. It takes more time and sometimes I just decide to bag it and not leave a comment because it is such a pain.
Anyone else been having these same thoughts???
I've noticed that a lot of veteran bloggers whose blogs I visit often do not have it enabled either, which is what gave me the courage to try my little experiment. I get almost giddy when I go to leave a comment and I don't have to translate any letters!
If you are worried about spam then you can moderate your comments and catch it before it is published. To do that just sign into your blogger account and go into the comments setting and scroll until you find the comment moderator. Click on NEVER.
To turn it off, go to comments, scroll down to word verification and click on NO.
Just my two cents. Take it or leave it... ☺
