ASKING A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO READ THIS!

Good evening Friends,

Our blogging friend Carmen FROM PRIMCATS BLOG asked if we would repost this, AND GET THE WORD OUT THERE in regards to having everyone make there blogs user friendly. I don't know about you, but I have been having a heck of a time, leaving comments on friends blogS who still have there word verification on. I along with Carmen and many other blogging friends have become very frustrated over trying to leave comments for those of you who are still using blog verification. please take a moment of your time and read THIS, I AM SURE YOU WILL FIND IT PACKED WITH A LOT OF IMPORTANT INFO.

I'm begging... remove the word verification!!!!!!!

Happy Monday friends!

Have lots to talk about and catch up on but I have a favor to ask....

Please friends... please... I am begging you to remove the "prove your not a robot" thing off your blog. I promise... you don't need it.

It is a default blogger setting so unless you have turned it off... I bet you have it.

Blogger changed the look of it recently... the words are longer, there are two now and they are much much much much harder to read and I am tired of not being able to read it and spending minutes trying to leave comments because I can't figure out what in the world it says. My frustration level with the new word verification is through the roof and I will soon enough just stop commenting on blogs that have it.

****Added based on comments -And just read the comments below, I'm not the only one who won't be commenting on WV blogs.

In the three years I have been blogging a Spam Robot has never gotten through. Not to mention I have only ever gotten 5 spam and they have all been caught by blogger and dumped into my spam folder. And I am a relitively high traffic site with my email available right there on the right for bots to steal.

You just don't need the word verification!

*****Added in response to comments - No. I don't use comment moderation either. As you post a comment to go to my blog it goes. I do not approve them. And STILL a spam has never made it through! :)

Please Please Please remove this unnecessary feature from your blog and also repost this asking your fellow bloggers to remove it as well. You will lose comment's if you keep it there.

For instructions on how to remove it... plus how to remove other annoying features from your blog... go here:

THANK YOU CARMEN, VERY WELL SAID! UNTIL NEXT TIME FRIENDS,
BIG HUGS,
MARY

Amen!! It was frustrating enough but the new word verification has been such a hassle, I can't read it!! Glad to see that I'm not the only one that dislikes that. I don't have any of that on my blog and I've never had a problem.

Ugggh...I couldn't believe it at first, I thought it was just the one blog, and then it went on and on. I don't think I ever had that option on the blog, the moderation is enough to catch any spam or spambots.
Hugs,
Susan
