Agreement on Blog Security issues

Having read Morning AJ's comment this morning, I feel I should voice my opinion in agreement with hers and with the opinions of many other Blogspot Bloggers. ENOUGH, already! Enough with the "prove you are not a robot" nonsense. We DO all know where the Delete button is and how many of us have found nasty comments or spam all over our blogs anyway? I am sorely tempted to refrain from commenting on those sites that persist in using this silly system. It is insulting and unnecessary. Please feel free to comment on MY blog , unencumbered by robots or by proving you are NOT one. If you are cheeky though, be prepared to be zapped into oblivion.

  1. A lot of people have taken off the word verification and I think that others would take it off too if they knew they could.

  2. Well, you know I agree! Thanks for joining the crusade.

  3. I know. I am at the point now where if I see those two non words, I stop commenting. It is a real time waster. I don't even know if everyone knows how to turn it off. It seems more people have it on now than ever before. It is too much.

  4. Yes, I agree. It's biggest fault is that it's a time waster. Having had to decipher high school students' writing for years, (we wouldn't let them write in capitals,) some of them are REALLY hard to decipher and if you're just stealing a moment of time to visit a couple of blogs it certainly can be irritating.

  5. I got rid of word verification a few years ago and although not a big blog, I've never had any issues. I agree. It is a pain although I'm getting better at the guessing! ;^) But any extra hassle, and I click cancel.

  6. Yes I so much agree with you, Carolynn. I can't express myself very well in English to send a protest to somebody and I would not know how to eliminate this non-sense. I am suffering being angry with this waste of time. It might be on my blog, too, and I don't know it

  7. Salutations! I found your website through The Needle and Thread Network. I like your site, but I do have a question: just where is the delete button? I have been spammed in the comments on my blog. I am a new blogger and am somewhat fearful of pushing the wrong button and losing layout or content. How can I delete these postings? Thanks in advance.

  8. Too bad you didn't provide a link to Morning AJ's post because I can't find it anywhere.
