Word Verification

I'm sure those of you who are regular bloggers will have come up against the new style Word Verification which frankly is an absolute pain to read, often requiring several attempts to get the correct letters and you will know it takes much longer to get round your favourite blogs.

So imagine how hard it has become for those of us on Design Teams, as it means we don't always get to some of you because the time we set aside for commenting is wasted faffing about with Word Verification when we should be moving on to the next entry. So in future, much as we love visiting you all, we will no longer leave comments on blogs using word verification.  

If you are concerned about spam or unwanted comments, then comment moderation will allow you to  protect your blog, having Word Verification in place will not protect you. It's easy to switch off, but rather than go  over it again I suggest you go check out this excellent post on Ashley's blog. My thanks to Ashley for allowing me to link to you.

We are always happy to hear your views, so please do leave us a comment and let us know what you think.

This is a good solution! That new word verification is obnoxious!
