Normally, I'd say 'Nuff Said. Except, sadly, it's not. I HATE HATE HATE these...
And while these ones above seem "easy" to read, some are not. There are times I want to make a witty and clever comment on a blog (which I know you are just dying to read) and I have to go through 2 or 3 sets of word verifications just to prove that I am not a robot. It used to only require one word, but now it requires 2 each time. Talk about frustrating. It's even worse if you are trying to comment from a phone.
I didn't used to require word verification on my own posts, that is until I started receiving a plethora of comments that looked like this:
It was getting rather annoying having to continuously "delete forever" these types of comments. I would also get many comments such as, "Your blog is much appreciation. Follow please my blog for business networks. [blog address here]." One thing I hate more than being outsourced is the outsourcerers tracking me down! Bleh. Needless to say, I turned on the word verification "security" feature and the aforementioned type comments came to a screeching halt.
However, in trying to be better at staying current with all of the blog posts, this requires me to be able to read the blogs I follow and leave an appropriate comment (because how else will they know I've stopped by? And you gotta give love to get love!) in a timely manner. But when it comes to a point wherein it takes longer to leave a comment (thanks to having to prove I'm no robot) than it does to actually read the post? Well, it's almost not worth it.
But -- let's face it! I can't completely abandon you. I need to read your blogs and I need you to read mine! I lubbers you! So, here's what I'm gonna do to prove it. I am leaving my word verification turned OFF Yep! That's right. I'm hoping I will be able to stay under the radar of foreign bloggy solicitations, but I'm willing to take that risk just for you, dear readers. And I guess I am hoping that maybe you love me just enough to do the same?
And I'm not joking... it really does say:
Please prove you're not a robot
right before you have to decipher something like this...
Seriously...so annoying. Okay, NOW 'nuff said! Mwah!
