Attention, spammers!

Since too many humans have complained about the "verification" process I have been using here, I have turned it off.

Real humans may still say what they want.

Spammers will be tracked down and subjected to vicious attacks by an army of rabid weasels.

Or at least their comments will be deleted.

When blogger comes up with a spam-blocker that doesn't mess with people who want to leave comments -- sometimes including, alas, me -- I will enable it again.

I am so glad you got rid of that! too often I had to repeat my comments, or use copy and paste... very frustrating.
And you KNOW how I enjoy leaving comments! heehee

Cool. I don't like to type more than I have too -- we'll call it laziness...

birdie -- the other choice was to allow comments from "registered users," which I presumes people with blogger accounts. Not everyone wants to have a journal here, so that didn't seem right.

I'm writing to the admins to see if they can come up with something better. The JS "verification" system is just as bad.

I didn't mind the verification, but it seemed to have a time limit or something. So then I had to type in a new word and my password again.

yeah, dal...and now it'll be harder for you to call me a dqxytwzfe.

Neener, neener, neener....

As Bill the Cat says, "Thbbbt!"
