Word Verification

Word Verification aka CAPTCHA. It's annoying and an bother to all readers. It's seriously one of my biggest blogging pet peeves. I mean really, I went to your page to say hello or tell you how great craft is. I leave a nice comment and then bam! This stupid CAPTCHA pops up. I'm like really? Do you honestly get that many bots? Maybe some of you are newer and don't really know what word verification was designed for. It was designed for sites who get a lot of spam/bot comments, pretty much like the crap you get in your email spam folder. So honestly ponder this.. Is it honestly worth the trouble?

So you can only imagine how excited I was to see this button on another site. I was like no way! I'm not the only one who is irked by this! So I'm joining the club and adding this button to my site. Click on the button to get your own :)


  1. i sometimes think that blogs that require word verification don't always get my comments. my internet sometimes hiccups and takes too long to load pages, and i'm pretty sure that i've accidentally closed a window because the word verification doesn't pop up quickly enough.

  2. I know right? Sometimes I don't even notice that the comment didn't post.

  3. Too funny! I had typed a different comment to say how annoying I think word verification is. Then, I went to post my comment and your site asked me to type in a word to verify I'm a real person.

    The evil Captcha rears its ugly head again! : )
