About three weeks ago I took word verification off of my comments. I think. If it is still requiring you to type that silly word, please let me know!
The first time I took it off I started getting SPAM on older posts. This time I checked the box saying to put comment moderation on posts older than 14 days.
So far I have not gotten any more SPAM.
I've gotten quite used to typing the silly words. I make it a personal challenge and look at it as an exercise for my old brain.
I have also removed the auto-correct. It kept changing my misspelled words into words that were nonsense. I would rather watch for the red underline and correct the spelling (mistyping) myself.
My days have been good. Getting some art work done, and today we took the first pass at the taxes. There goes the savings account!
