I'm Sorry

I can't remember how many times I've ranted and raved over the comment verification on blogs.  It's always a frustrating thing for me to have to type all those letters in... usually I have to type it in 3 or 4 times before I get it right.  My fingers mover faster than my brain.
But, I'm afraid that I've had to cave and put it up here.  I'm not getting nasty comments.  No haters or anything like that... just spam.  Lots of spam on my older posts.  And it annoys me to no end.  This is my place!  I don't want you to write about your "helpful, cheap, medical supplies" on my blog.  GET YOUR OWN BLOG!!
So, I'm sorry, but you'll have to type in those crazy little letters from now on to read my blog.  My deepest and humblest apologies.

I'm getting annoyed by the spam too. *whispers - it's not on my blog... yet* It REALLY bugs me that I'm getting grody ones on my nieces' blog that I moderate (the conjoined twins.) Stupid.

AH well. I'll keep reading... :)

I'm getting a few spam comments on my old posts. I may have to do the same thing. It's getting annoying.

i have found that most of the spam comes on older posts. there's an option to where you can moderate all comments older than whatever period you specify. so mine is set at one week. anything comment that comes in for a post older than a week, it shows up under moderation. i click "all" and delete them all in one swoop. easy peasy =)

but i don't think it's a big deal to type in the letters either.

That's why I put the word verification back on my comments. I had it off for a week an had a ton of spam.
I really don't mind typing the letters.
