Blogger has done it again! Can they make things any more unfriendly?
When I first started blogging I both used and didn't use the word verification feature on my comment form.
Because I myself dislike having to type in the scrambled letters, I turned it "off," and have not had it "on" for most of a year. At least I think it is "off." Please tell me if it isn't!
Occasionally I will get a strange comment, and simply delete it. I also get several comments in the spam file from time to time. They usually are spam, but I have the ability to look them over and publish them if they are not.
I accept comments from "anonymous" because my family members comment, but are not followers.
I only moderate comments on posts that are over two weeks old. I catch a spam with this from time to time as well.
I often leave comments just to let people know I am reading their posts. Most of the time they are just friendly "right on!" messages.
If you have the word verification feature "on" for your comments, I will continue to read your posts, but I am seriously considering not leaving any more comments on your posts. It was hard enough when I had to descramble one word, but now that blogger is asking for two it might be too much trouble unless I feel my comment is very important.
This will be particularly true when I'm reading on the iPad instead of my laptop. The screen size leaves something to be desired when trying to decipher the scrambles words.
