....but sometimes I can't read the little code things you're supposed to type in to prove you're human. You know, the warped letters and numbers? Does this mean I'm not human? That I'm a computer? Ahkdhlkdsjlfjdslfj *cue existential crisis*.
Anyways, these things are annoying, especially when I have to type them in every time I want to post a comment on someone else's blog. Here's the thing: unless you have a wildly popular blog with thousands of weekly visitors, you are unlikely to get spammed (my word verification's been off for over a year now and I haven't gotten a single piece of spam). So as a frequent commenter on many writing related blogs, this is a friendly suggestion: turn off word verification. It's easy enough. Go to settings, click the bar at the top that says comments, then scroll down to the word verification section. Once you turn it off, it will be easier for other people to comment on your blog.
It's not a big deal. I'll still comment on blogs with word verification, as I'm sure other people do as well. But seriously, sometimes those verification phrases are so twisted, pixelated, and distorted they're impossible to read. Am I the only one who has this trouble?
Do a favor to your blog readers and turn off word verification.
