Say No for Word Verification

As I was going through some blogs, I found something distrubing - That's nothing but Word Verification.

I feel like posting some comments on bloggers who have done really amazing jobs but when this word verification comes up, feel like not commenting on that post.



Say NO to Word Verification
There is a solution for this but it requires 2mins from each individual blogger.

Solution for this:
In the New Blogger Interface, you can select 'No' for Word Verification through your Blog Dashboard. The menu is shown on the left hand side - choose 'Settings', then 'Posts and Comments'. Select 'No' for Show Word Verification. This is also where you can prohibit Anonymous comments by selecting 'Registered Users - includes Open I.D.' under 'Who Can Comment'. This eliminates about 99% of spam. Otherwise, you can select 'Yes' for Comment Moderation if you wish to approve them before they are published. Hit the 'Save Settings' button at the top right.

Do visit the following link, not only with word verification but also other blogging issues (TexWisGirl aka Theresa)she has covered and explained well. she has done a fabulous job.

Your not alone in disliking word-verification.
Blogger sets word-verification to yes by default- and some people don't change it to no- or do not know how.

Hey AW! I, too, find word verification annoying. But I hang in there with it because some of my best blogging friends use it. If I can't read it, I keep hitting the refresh button until I get one I can read! Loved your blog post "Looking up for someone?" before this one. Have a good day!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting, even with the word verification there. I know it can be frustrating, so thanks to your suggestion, I will try out the 'no' word verification settings again.

Thanks for pointing that in my blog word verification is enabled. Even I was also not aware of this.I know how irritating that can be.

Now I have put it off , but I hope spammers dont infest me :)
