Then Blogger changed from its one-word-often-amusing Word Verification to a two-word-incredibly-blurry-and-never-funny Word Verification. I first encountered the change on other blogs and when I realized how annoying and difficult it had become to leave a comment, I removed it from mine.
Since then I've received between two and eight Spam comments each day.
I'm not sure which is more annoying -- the junk filling my inbox or the eyestrain from the new comment format.
So I'm trying another option available on Blogger's pull-down menu: Registered Users only. I don't really know what this means, but I think it will eliminate the anonymous comments without having to go through the Word Verification. If you know more than I do, please share (without mentioning Viagra or cheap airflights). I hope a couple of you will leave comments and tell me what is entailed.
If this option doesn't work, I'm going to have to return to those wretched two word WVs.
Why the heck didn't Blogger leave well enough alone!
