It's about word verification for comments to your blogs. I very much understand about having COMMENT MODERATION. I didn't at first, and when I got a comment or two that was either really nasty or foul, I started it. Of course, it's nice to see one's comment instantly on a blog post, but it's kinda smart to do it to avoid any unpleasant messages.
What I don't understand is word verification. I mean I UNDERSTAND it, but am I wrong to find it slightly annoying? I know it's to avoid "non-humans" from leaving messages, but can't that just be avoided by using comment moderation?
One reason I hate it is because when I first started blogging, Google apparently thought my posting a lot each day meant that I was posting spam. Each and every time I saved something, I had to type in a word verification code. You have no idea how annoying that is. I wanted to scream. So I have a grudge against word verification. (To get rid of it, they LOOK at your blog and when they determine you're a real person, they take the word verification requirement off when you're drafting a post.)
My problem now is that sometimes it seems like the word verification interferes with leaving comments on other folks' blogs. Occasionally, after I type in a comment, it loses it (of course, always the most lengthy and complicated ones) or I never know if it was really sent, because the comment never shows up on the particular blog.
I suppose it could be that various bloggers just decided not publish the comments, but how could that be? (I know...I'm so full of myself.) Anyway, I'm probably just clueless about why word verification is a good thing.
