Come on people...PLEASE???

OK, now please, please, please listen up!!!! This is makin' me crazy (-ier) and is really dumb!! For the love of Pete Rose..........STOP WITH THE WORD VERIFICATION THINGY ON YOUR BLOG!! Yes, I shouted it! Seriously though, why do you use it? I promise you I'm a real person, not a spamming robot. Please disable this way stupid, annoying Blogger feature!!

Not sure if you have it on? Not sure how to turn it off?? Please, allow me....
1. Get to your blog home page
2. Click on the "Customize" tab, located on the upper right hand corner of the screen.
3. Click on the "Settings" tab, located on the upper left hand corner of the screen.
4. Under Settings, click on "Comments".
5. Scroll down near the bottom and click the NO for word verification!!!!
6. Be sure to click SAVE CHANGES!!

Now I will never fuss at anyone using the Comment Moderation feature. I've been Troll Stalked plenty of times, to the point that my blog URL was completely changed 5 or 6 times. So I understand if you want to see comments before they appear on your blog. BUT...I'm running into more and more people that have the word verification turned on AND moderation. Hello? If you are going to check your comments first anyway, why the word verification??? These are non-words and chances are I'm not going to get them right the first time, so it takes longer. The longer it takes to post one comment, the less comment bloggy love I get to give and the fewer blogs I can visit!!
JUST SAY NO TO

WORD VERIFICATION!

Kat said...

But BUT But ...... for the love of Pete Rose? Geez Louise couldn't you have picked someone else?? Pete Rose? Blah (sorry)

I'm pretty sure mines off. I think. But, I agree, when you want to leave a comment sometimes it just takes to long to get verified your human and you want to wonder away...

Mary said...

I just turned mine off recently b/c I was getting weird people posting on my blog anyways...

Jamie said...

I don't think I've had it on since I've started this blog but it does kind of annoy me a little bit....Takes longer to leave comments.

April said...

I don't even know if mine is on or not! I thought it was good to have it on to keep from getting spammed...maybe I'm wrong! I'll look into it!

Kristina P. said...

I was thinking the same thing! Word verifcation AND moderation? I so don't understand that.

Grand Pooba said...

I'm SO with you girl! I've said NO to verification all my life! I plan to teach my children to say no too.

Jo said...

Word verification doesn't bother me... as a matter of fact one person who's blog I follow had a post where you had to take your "word" and make up a definition for it... it was quite funny :)

My pet blogging peeve is music that automatically plays when I get to the blog. That normally makes me not even read the blog. Nine times out of ten... OK, ten times out of ten I am watching TV or listening to my OWN music (not on my blog) and when I open a blog with music it irritates me.

I hope you'll still comment on my blog... because I intend to keep the word verif. on... I used to have it off and I kept getting awful, horrible comments. I have not gotten a single "bad egg" since I turned the WV on.

Kate said...

AMEN SISTER!!!! I can't stand that dang thing!!!! my other big pet peeve is music on a blog. I'm trying to surf quietly and BLANG BLANG. I like my peace and quiet.

It took me forever to realize people use the modification. I had no idea where my comments would go and I would end up commenting on the same blog a couple of times. I have since become smarter.

Vickie said...

At least 5 times a day, I am spelling those things wrong. They are placed so together, I have a hard time reading the letter.

I have only been hit twice, but I knew someone who was hit 40 times in a row!

Did you say you were stalk? Did they or you change the URL? That sounds scary!

babyrocasmama said...

I turned my off last year, per your request. BUT I have found some interesting "words" on the verification thingy. I have been thinking about doing a post on the letter combinations...OK maybe I am the only one who finds humor in this...

Katie said...

I guess I am one of those people:) I have both on and they're not just to make sure you're human! I have the verification on because the first few days I had my blog I did not and I got crazy spam comments. I moderate the comments because I consider my blog a family friendly one and wouldn't want anything too exciting put up, and yes I did get quite a comment from on of my face to face friends. Had to call her and tell her maybe a G or at most PG 13 comment was a better choice! I hope this doesn't stop you from visiting and posting:)

Melodie said...

My sentiments exactly!

Diamond said...

I'm with you. I find it sooo anoying and time-consuming. On one blog, the darn thing made me type "blisshole". Blisshole???

Cassie said...

uh huh...uh huh....Oh, I did this already for you! ;)

So far so good. Only one strange comment, but I don't think word verification would have stopped it (no it wasn't from you silly)! It is nice to leave comments without having to type nonsensical words!

Lizzie said...

i'm with you 100%!!

Janna said...

I would totally agree, however just got spammed yesterday! Unfortunately, that means mine has word verification now. Hope you will still visit!

Can I have an amen??
