Blogger has a new word verification system. As the author of this blog, I never have to use the verifications system.
After receiving a few emails from users complaining about how difficult it is to use, it occurred to me that it must go.
Indeed it is atrocious. It keeps telling me it's wrong, even when it's correct. I understand why some of you have resorted to emailing me directly. That is fine because I appreciate the frank exchange of ideas, but it does defeat the purpose of a public comments section.
The word verification is a thing of the past but now my comments folder is full of spam. Incredible!
Everything from sex enhancement products to right wing Christian propaganda!
If there is one thing I hate even more than narcissistic trolls and hobbits, it is spam!
