Word Verification Back On

I tried turning the comment word verification off yesterday to see how it would go (I've had people indicate it's causing them trouble). Unfortunately, within a few hours I already had several spam comments, including links to pornographic sites and fake sites to sell assorted products. As a result, I've decided to turn the word verification back on. My blogging time is limited and I don't want to spend it sorting though spam comments. I apologize for the inconvenience, as these spammers really frustrate me and take some of the joy out of blogging. But I really enjoy my real readers' comments so please keep them coming!

Maybe blogger can come up with a better spam filter...


  1. I'm so sorry you've had so much trouble with spammers! I haven't had more than two or three in three years. Guess I've just been lucky! I surely don't blame you for putting word verification back on and it certainly won't keep me from visiting/commenting as always.


  2. No worries! I'll still be here looking and commenting!

  3. Thanks a lot for your explanation.
    I see I an fortunate because a have, in muy blogs, half a dozen in five years.
    I'll be here, from time to time if I have time enough.

  4. OH!! I'm so sorry to hear! Well, I guess Blogger has a very good reason for having the spam codes.. Not all getting spam, but of those who do.. it's a problem.. To me I can read the difficult codes ok.. :)Not every time though.. but most.. But I must admit they ar more difficult to read.. but one must, one must, and it goes fine to me :)

  5. No worries, Al! Spam is very bad indeed. I also will be here looking and commenting your gorgeous pictures. Thanks for your explanations.

    I turning the comment word verification off onb my blog because Blogger did more difficult words to read.
    So I continue moderating the comments. Till now, fortunately I have been having few spams.

  6. Comment moderation stops that, I hate that Captcha thing.


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment - I love reading them and look forward to viewing your blog. If you only allow Google+ comments I won't be able to leave a comment in return.
