I follow quite a few. Too many, probably. Some are posted almost every day, some once or twice a week. A few just sporadically.
I hate word verification. Not real sure why anyone needs it, but either I don’t have a problem because of this blog on WordPress, or maybe because I have a Mac. Anyway, I am not sure why anyone needs it, tho’ several authors of blogs have explained it to me.
Hey, I have gray hair and it’s getting grayer, so that my excuse for not remembering what I ought to and for not understanding what I ought to!
Anyway, I have made a command decision. I will no longer post a reply on any blog that has word verification, unless it is a truly outstanding (I’m talking top notch here, folks) post. Like this one.
I like your blog. I read your blog, but life is just too freekin’ short to go to the extra effort with as much time as I should be doing other things and not trying to fill in made up words and/or symbols. I figure it’s all a commie plot anyway!
If you blog writers hate me for this, so be it. Like I said, life is too short and hectic of late. ‘Sides, I rally ought to be doing other things, but I am a voracious reader. Not so much on the comments!
If because of this, it makes you feel you should not comment on mine, so be it.
That is all.

I hear ya! I hate it too, and find it’s completely unnecessary. Blogger has really good spam protection now.
I agree and it takes so much time to comment that sometimes I don’t comment because of that fact! I will have to make sure I check mine 😉
I’m with you all the way. I positively hate it!
Ah, heck, JB, I will always read and comment here no matter….. I will shut my WV off again for a while and see if I get spammed. Usually I can go for a while before I get dozens of comments telling me how to improve on body organs that I don’t even have. lol
Alas, after a while they will find me again. Suppose I could moderate instead…..
You must get more readers. I never get spam. Maybe you just need to switch to wordpress? 😉
Don’t shut it off just for me.
Three Collie is a hoot! I followed her here from her blog.
Well, shoot Mariannne! Will you please forward those care-and-feeding-of-your-organs spams that you received?
I still might have one of those relevant organs.
P.S. JB . . I,too, have gray hair . . and share your pain.
Yes 3 Collies, tell us more! 😉
By the way, with a name like 3 Collies, you are evidently Native American, which tribe? 😉
No comment! 😉
I am of the blond and pink, Scots-Irish tribe.I tried WordPress but am too dumb (see hair color) to work it so I stuck with Blogger. lol So far the spam guard is picking up all the organ enhancement and banking in Bahrain comments so all is good.
Yeeeeeeaaaaaaa! I can do wordpress and you can’t. Oh the humanity!!!!
I hate the word verification..I have never had a problem with spam. Blogger picks up most of it. I usually read but rarely comment on blogs that have it. I read quite a few too..some bloggers are totally nuts and have word verification and moderation too..both!! Insane. I have a local WordPress Blog..it catches the spam for me and then I delete it. 🙂
