Say No to Word Verification

It seems I opened a can of worms yesterday ;-) Thank you for all your lovely comments agreeing with me :-) If people are worried about people posting unwanted comments on their blog then just turn on the owner approval option and screen comments yourself !!!
Some people don't even realise that they have it turned on so please go and check it is turned off in your settings :-)
Please copy this image and post it on your blogs,,, lets start a MASSIVE campaign !! I am almost tempted to stop leaving any comments on blogs who have it turned on. I really don't think we should have to jump through hoops for the priveledge of leaving anyone a comment. So you are warned !!! :-)

It is a pain, no doubt and I never used it until recently. Why? Viagra...I kept getting hit with spam ads for Viagra. Still, I get a groan in my throat every time I have to type a nonsensical word in order to leave praise for somebody else's work. I'd sure hate to loose any followers or comments over though. Hope your movement takes off.

Best of luck!

totally agree with you lorraine, it's a pain in the ass, and sometimes you can't even read the words. I have had the against sign on my blog for ages and got some bloggers to turn them off.

Lynne in NI said...

I agree entirely - I haven't had my word verification on for months and haven't had any dodgy comments.
Have added the pic to my sidebar. I think I've also done the pop up box thingy too ... never realised that was an issue for some bloggers, hopefully sorted now!

WHOA, the mild mannered Lorraine got her back up. Didn't think you had that in you girl. I agree, I have had mine off forever, but I did have a creepy spam for the first time last week and I just deleted it. Was kinda fun picturing you with your dukes up!!!! LOVE YA GIRL!

Spyder said...

I've now turned mine off too, and will place the banner on my side bar too. I've only had the odd spam...I just delete them!
