Word verification for comments temporarily turned off

I've temprorarily turned off the word verification feature for the comments because it's malfunctioning. It's not allowing a number of people to post a comment, including myself!

The whole word verification thing was only enabled in the first place to discourage spambots, and it's been very effective at that. As soon as Blogger fixes the problem, I plan to turn it on again. Till then, enjoy posting without the bother of that added step, and ignore all spambots--who will undoubtedly pay a visit.

I've got a blog, where you can read about all kinds of esoteric and interesting...OK, just kidding.

I couldn't resist...

ha ha - nice blog, I too have a blog that shows you how to make at least 10K a month from home on a part time basis, tax free.

Not 5 hours later, Neo's first spam bot. Is she nervous with anticipation over the next one?

Yes, I am being ironic.

Speaking of which I was reading Andrew Sullivan this morning and he has a photo of a gay Jewish guy with a beard named "Oliver Kamm" --is this some kind of common name or does OK have a split personality?

Here's a video link from M Yon's site, about the helpless kittens being blown up by IEDs.

A bit ironic, but still.

if you are using Safari on a Mac, it is buggy but not impossible to post

I've always hated the word verification, I OFTEN had to do it twice, even though I know I typed it correctly the first time...

If you have the word on screen for awhile, the timer algorithmn runs out and resets. So you have to make sure that you write your stuff within a couple of minutes.

I bet you'd know about that, eh Ymar?

Indeed, I would. It is compounded by the fact that I use a multiple-tab browser, so I leave post pages on while browsing other stuff. Then when I come back and paste my comments...
