This Will Reduce Comments

The reasons to leave Blogger has gone up by one. Their new word verification makes leaving comments a real hassle. Here is an example I encountered this morning.

  1. I said the same thing. Took me three attempts to leave a comment on Hermione's blog - I couldn't read the words.

    Love,

  2. I agree completely I also had to make 2 attempts to get a comment onto a blog. By the look of it I'm going to have the same problem getting this one through as the first word is almost illegible.

  3. Add my vote to the list, I had 3 attempts to just post this comment!!!

    I know I'm getting older, but hell I couldn't make out the letters.

  4. Thanks for the warning! I have just switched the comment confirmation off and enabled the moderation for older posts instead. Many people are complaining about the new comment verification (also on the blogger help pages), so I hope that they will either go back to the old system, or at least offer bloggers a choice to go back to the old version. In the meantime I will see how stressful it is to moderate old threads and to deal with spam when the comment confirmation is switched off. If it becomes to stressful (or as soon as blogger offers a better version), I will turn the comment confirmation on again.

  5. I agree but transferring everything seems like a royal pain.. it took me a few times to realize you do not even leave a space, even though their is one.

  6. I agree, they are hard to read. I do leave a space between the two, and it works for me. Don't forget that there is punctuation too.

  7. I've been complaining about this for the past week! It's so annoying, I sit there and just refresh and refresh hoping to get one that is actually readable. I swear I'm not a robot, just give me legible words, dammit!

  8. Another vote against it. Surely they don't have to make one of the words largely illegible.
