i,m NOT a Robot....or a bear for that matter :)


So Blogger you think I look like this? So you now want me to jump through more hoops than ever in word verification? Don't you realise I fessed up in the last post on how I look, I AM NOT A ROBOT...... or a bear for that matter!

Please consider turning off word verification its got even more annoying. Mine is off and I get no spam.

Go to your dashboard, its in settings, then comments.

If you have trouble just google 'turn of word verification blogger' there are loads of sites that help you, thats what I did.

I have done a couple of post about this - I spend longer typing in the ridiculous words than on the comment! Wouldn't mind if I had to type in FART, PENIS or HUMONGOUS BOOBS but no it is things loke WDSTE and FYTPU! Grrr

They get on my pip! Yahoo have started having them to send emails now. Bloody hell! Some of them are impossible to read too. xx

I took word verification off for a while a few weeks ago but I found I was getting up to 10 spam comments plus e-mails a day especially on older posts - none since I put it back on - but I noticed today that you now have to decipher two words not one which is a pain! I might take it off again for a while or until I get too many spam comments again:)

This is a pretty cute post. I wondered what was going on. Did the robots figure out how to type in one word? Is that why we humans now have to type in two words? It's a funny world :)

Jeeze! Who knew you could turn it off?!?! I might give it a go. As I moderate my comments, I can keep an eye on the spammers if indeed they can be bothered with my little blog.Thanks for the heads up.
