Word verification back on

Sorry folks.  I turned the dislikable feature "Word verification" back on.  I have been getting a lot of SPAM in my comments.  I hate the fact that to get rid of Spam, I have to make it harder fro real people.

I said I wanted to turn it off and to see what happened.

Now I know.

Talk to you later ...

  1. I'm with you, Merikay, I just turned my word verification back on as well. Too much hassle with spam and it seemed to be getting worse each day. So, now everyone gets to do a 'word puzzle' exercise when leaving a comment!

  2. I have also been getting some odd messages. I'm not really sure if a few of them would be considered spam or just crazy people. I have been "rejecting" those comments, but if that doesn't stop them, I may have to turn the word verification back on as well.

  3. Yeah, I don't like the word verification either, but I left it on anyway - just because I didn't want to deal with all the spam. It's crazy - I find it so hard to believe that these people ever get a response to these crazy emails and comments. Why do they bother?

  4. I never mind the word verification, just another step. I just have trouble deciding - is it an 'n', 'm', 'e', or 'a'? :)
    Do you ever try to pronounce the goofy combinations? Today's verification is 'teodoff'..haha,

  5. Thanks for the update. I've had the word verification on since I started my blog and have never received any spam. I'll definitely be leaving it alone!
