Blogger’s "Word Verification" SUCKS!
I don’t know about you but I’m fed up with blogger’s “word verification” option for reducing commenting spam.
When it works it’s very effective eliminating automated spam. HOWEVER, after writing a new post or making changes to my template it goes on the fritz again and nobody can leave comments. For some unknown reason it refuses to acknowledge the verification code. Only after republishing the blog (or index) will it work again.
If you have a lot of blogs and write a lot of posts like I do that means republishing dozens of times per day, and let me tell you that is a complete pain in the you know what. I’ve wasted a week putting up with it and had enough. So I turned it off.
I have contacted blogger support numerous times and all they do is send me a canned message telling me to clear out the browser cache and cookies. Thanks for the help boys and girls BUT IT DOESN’T WORK! Get it?
Has anybody else noticed this problem because I would really like to know if I’m the only one suffering with this nuisance?
