The new word verification on Blogger is driving me nuts.
Until recently, we were only required to type in one very legible, nonsensical word. Now, there are two swirly, fuzzy difficult-to-read words that will, supposedly, prove that I'm not a robot. Last night, I was making my weekly rounds of blogs to view Illustration Friday entries, and got so frustrated at word verification that I finally logged off and ate ice cream.
I've noticed that some of you have removed it. I have done the same, and hopefully won't get tons of spam. (I'm already getting way too may spam visits from Russian websites, even with word verification turned on.) But they've made it a bit tricky to turn off:
- First of all, you can't be in the new-and-improved (hmmm...) Blogger interface. So, if you're on the new dashboard, click on the little gear wheel up on the right, and select "Old Blogger Interface".
- Once you're at the old dashboard (I've missed you, old buddy!), go to Settings, then Comments, and then scroll down to where you can choose to turn off Word Verification.
