blogger you're a pain..........

Blogger how the hell are we supposed to leave comments with word verications looking like this now............
Quite by accident I had worked out you don't need to include the number box on the left but seriously changing the writing on the right to this is seriously testing my eye sight
Do you not want us to leave comments anymore????
This is why I turned off my word verification awhile ago and only let people with a google accounts leave comments...........I also turned on comment moderation after 4 days............I don't usually get any spam thank goodness............
%%%%%%%%%
feeling miserable here...........i've been forced to stop everything...........mind you I had been on a whirly gig spinning very fast.........unable to stop and get off.......but I am getting sick of the lounge after 2 days on it..............bugger the head cold...........lets just hope thats all it is.....I want to do something but don't have the energy to do anything.......
....I missed going away with the family as i was feeling to yuk to travel :(
Hope your keeping warm..........what awful weather........
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  6. The word verification is driving me insane too. Sometimes just as I press the publish button I realise that the word I have written is wrong, and yet it publishes anyway. What? I have not have any problems since following your lead and turning the WV off.

  9. Poor Chooky! I do hope you get rid of that lurgy soon. Nothing worse than feeling too weak to do anything. I too have turned off the word verification. It certainly is hard to try to make out the characters. Thanks for the hint that you don't need the numbers.

  11. Word verifications and this winters version of the common cold - both nasty pieces of work! Everyone in our house has had the cold, and relapsed with it...bring on spring! Hope you are feeling better soon, take care :)

  12. Yep. It sure is a pain. But I've found out that you can make mistakes in those words and it posts the comment anyway. Weird.

    Hope you feel better real soon. Xx

  18. Get well. I took that eye test off of mine a while ago. Blogger seems to catch the spam and puts it in a folder, at least so far.

  19. I agree! Where did this come from. Sometimes I don't get the word correct and have to do another one....I wish everyone would turn off word verification.

  26. I hear what you are saying but I have to keep it as I have a number of non-blogger friends who like to read and sometimes leave comments. Don't want to risk being spammed.

  27. I hope its only a head cold Chooky, cos what ever bug is going around here I have had for six days now and only just feeling human again. Can only recommend rest, four hourly panadol and a good book, hope you feel better soon.

  34. I find comments are generally on the decrease ...I'm not sure if it's the verification or whether its people using tablets and ipads to read blogs. But if you are trying to comment using a tablet and have word verfication it is almost impossible.
