"Word Verification". . . what a pain!
So yesterday morning when I woke up at 4:30 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep I decided to catch up on some blog reading. It was dark, obviously, and I couldn't turn on a light because the computer sits just outside the bedroom doors. My hands were feeling swollen and a little tingly as they usually do in the morning (can't wait for that to end). So there I sit in the dark with tingly hands trying to leave comments on blogs and then at the end I am forced to type in the darn "word verification." I consider myself to be able to type fairly well but does anyone else find it challenging to type those in correctly? And it's not even a word. It's a random jumble of letters that your fingers cannot type out smoothly. Sometimes on the real crazy ones if I mistype it more than once I just forgo leaving a comment all together. It gets very frustrating at times. So I went into my blog settings and found out that I have that darn word verification on too! It says it's to reduce the amount of "comment spam." I have never received any spam comments nor have I heard of anyone else receiveing any so I turned it off. Please enjoy leaving a comment on my blog "word verification" FREE! :0)
