I Am NOT a ROBOT!

Nor do I know how to decipher codes or ancient scripts or chicken scratch.This "Word Verification" bullshit on various websites and blogs has gotten out of hand. Fine, I get it, you want to make sure I'm not spamming or that I'm a human being, but whomever designs these word verification things needs to do a better job. How the heck am I suppose to figure out half the letters and numbers on these things when they look like the above??? I shouldn't have to guess more than once.

Goobily Gobbily Gook!

    uh-oh..... I hope that wasn't from Fned's blog.... I hate those word verifications too, in fact I didn't have one until recently... I had to activate one on my blog because these @'&%# japenese are great hackers and my spam mail has increased by 100% since logging in from here.

    I mean no offense to those of you who use it. My problem is with the people who make it impossible to tell WTF the letters and the numbers are. lol

    Trying to get it right by the third time has become standard issue for me. I wonder how many people just give up and don't comment anymore, or at all, because of it? I have to do it on my blog because of the frickin spammers. If I turn it off for even one day, I am inundated with crap...and shit.

    Bloggers is the worst for me!! I do sometimes just give up and not comment because I get sick of it. :) Just noticed yours is captcha free, though, so that's great!
